Stop by the ranger shed on main post and get a proper map. Going straight in on Morganton is pretty easy, but can land you in a impact area really quick if you don't know the trails. Oh, and don't get caught, and don't do it in hunting season. The whole reservation is hunted during deer season.
Running the Manchester 500 isn't bad depending on when you do it. I'm normally heading through there around 0500 and things are pretty clear. Traffic picks up around 0545. It is always busy in the afternoons. When I take the trails, I generally do it in the afternoons.
