Holiday gear guide to the rescue: SMN serves up goods bets for the outdoors person on your shopping list

If it’s impossible to bring them to their favorite trailhead or mountain top, the next best thing is to bring the gadgets of the great outdoors to them.

 

The Smoky Mountain News has partnered with four outdoor shops in the region — Mast General Store in Waynesville, Outdoor 76 in Franklin, Blackrock in Sylva and Nantahala Outdoor Center in Wesser — to compile our annual outdoor gear shopping list.

Mast General Store, Waynesville

Outdoor 76, Franklin

Nantahala Outdoor Center, Wesser

Blackrock Outdoor Company, Sylva
