On this classic early summer hike, we will visit Gregory Bald in hopes of experiencing the flame azaleas in bloom. We will use the Gregory Ridge Trail and climb steadily to its intersection with the Gregory Bald Trail. From there it’s a short climb to the summit of Gregory Bald. If we experience a clear day, a view of Cades Cove and Fontana Lake will also be provided. The total distance of the hike is roughly 11.3 miles with 3,000 feet elevation gain. The hike is rated moderately difficult. Meet at Alcoa Food City at 7:30 a.m. (drive is 80 miles RT @ 10 cents/mile = $8.00) or at the Gregory Ridge Trailhead at 8:30 a.m.

Leader: Mark Shipley
