Short term parking options for section hikers?

I'm going to be doing a couole of short sections (8 to 10 ish miles) and will need overnight parking.  Thought others may be interested in the same so I figured I'd post if so everyone could see and so I could refer back to it when I forget what folks said 🙂

Wondering about parking at thr gaps, specifically Hightower and Gooch right now but would love to know about other places along the trail.  Looking specifically for places tjat are a) legal and b) safe for overnight (or a few nights) parking.

This site is an amazing source of parking info along the whole trail.  Describes every road crossing and parking site, with insights on safety of parking there, location and directions, number of parking spaces, and usually pictures.  I use it a lot, and when I actually get to a road crossing, it's like I've already been there.  http://appalachiantrail.rohland.org/
