    “Gather friends and listen to a story. ‘Tis the simple tale of a simple, strong and kindly folk. Many moons ago, thru main-strength awkwardness, they built the Cabin-in-the-Brier. Their exertions made them very happy, and the cabin they built has been a source of pleasure to all who have come after them.”
    - 1942 SMHC Handbook

    Here’s an opportunity to “keep ‘em happy” by having a “house cleaning.” We’ll do some yard work and floor sweeping, and we will remove graffiti from the log chinking. We will install a nice, new sign proclaiming, “Smoky Mountains Hiking Club Cabin.” During a break from our exertions, we can learn about the history of the cabin and how it has been enjoyed by club members. Celebrate with a “Wahee! Wahoo! that’ll make the natives sit up and rub their eyes.”

    Hike 1 easy mile. Bring lunch and work gloves. Tools provided. Meet at the first parking area on Greenbrier Rd (just off US 321 East Parkway) at 9:00 AM, ready to fill as few vehicles as possible, due to limited parking at the trailhead.

    In the 1987 issue of the Handbook, Ray Payne and Matthew Kelleher described the hike up Cannon Creek with the succinct warning, “They don’t get much harder!” Those joining the Club for his adventure will access Cannon Creek from the Porters Creek Trail just below the long footlog over Porters Creek, then begin a 4,300 foot climb requiring extensive rock-hopping. The 100-foot Cannon Creek Falls, perhaps the largest double-drop waterfall in the park, is the featured landmark along the way. It resides at the same approximate elevation as the Catstairs and Ramsey Cascades, and thus from the top of the precipice may offer genuine panoramic views. Upon reaching the summit of Mount Le Conte, hikers will return by the Trillium Gap and Brushy Mountain Trails. The off-trail is 3 miles and on-trail 11 miles.

    Leader: Ken Wise

    To help the club celebrate its Centennial Year, a reenactment of the famous S.O.S. Wilderness hike seems very appropriate. Back in 1966, SMHC and five other hiking clubs got together and organized a hike in protest of a new over mountain road proposed by the NPS Director at that time right through the heart of the Smokies wilderness. It is estimated that 576 hikers participated. There is a famous picture of Harvey Broome addressing the group before the hike. This effort plus others were successful in canceling any further plans for the road project. The club also reenacted the same hike in 2009 at the celebration of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park 75th anniversary. The route we will hike begins at Clingmans Dome parking lot and goes west on the AT to Miry Ridge trail which we follow down to Jake’s Creek trail on to Elkmont. The hike is 15.6 miles mostly downhill. We hope to provide more historical details on the hike. A shuttle bus is being arranged to simplify the driving with the $60 cost being split amongst all participants. Since the capacity of the bus is 24, the group size will be limited to that number. Meet at Jake’s Creek trail parking at Elkmont 7:30 am. Don’t forget a GSMNP parking pass will be required. Rated difficult due to length and elevation loss. Shuttle driving distance one way is 30 miles. Please register early with the leaders to help with planning.

    Our loop hike will begin on the Little River Trail out of Elkmont before turning onto the Huskey Gap Trail in about 2.5 miles.

Meet at the Kroger location in Alcoa next to a KARM store to leave at 7:30 am or at Little River Trailhead by 8:30am. Drive 70 miles RT at .07 / mile = $4.90.

    Each season, several hundred pounds of hardwood mulch are used at each of our backcountry privies to aid in proper composting. This work trip will focus on packing mulch to one or more of our backcountry privy locations that is less than 5 miles from the trailhead. Mulch is put in 20 lb. bags for carrying. The club has extra backpacking-style backpacks if needed. The SMHC Newsletter will provide details on what to bring and where we will meet.
