Using the latest updates from the map (Gaitlinburg and GSMNP perimeters also updated) here's the breakdown on trail miles actually affected:

Rock Mountain Fire, 15.1 miles affected, sections of 1.3 and 13.8 miles
Camp Branch Fire 3.6 miles affected, sections of 1.3, 2.0 and 0.3 miles
Tellico Fire 6.6 miles affected

So, that's a total of 25.3 miles of the AT actually affected.

The Chimney Tops 2 Fire (GSMNP) was within 2 miles of the trail, but the trail was not affected directly.
