Registration is closed

With the access road closed for so long, it has been a while since we hiked to Ramsey Cascades. Hiking first along the Middle Prong, then Ramsey Prong, we have classic Smokies creek scenery, before we hike past a number of spectacular old-growth trees. The last mile or so is a challenging rocky climb, but the reward is the 90 ft. waterfall. Elevation gain 2200ft, 8 miles roundtrip, rated moderate.

Meet at Comcast, Asheville Hwy at 8 am or at Ramsey Cascades trailhead at 9:15 am. Drive 85 miles RT {@ 0.05/mile = $4.25}. Leader: Diane Petrilla,, 931-224-5149.

Pre-registration is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.

Preregister with Ron Brandenburg, or text 865-898-7602 or at
