Let’s climb to Mt. Cammerer the “other” way, via the A.T,. at Davenport Gap. The 3000 ft. ascent is fairly gradual, passing junctions with Chestnut Branch Trail and Lower Mt. Cammerer Trail. There is a long sturdy rock wall built by the CCC as we get higher, and some magnificent views towards the Pigeon River Valley and the Black Mountains. As long as trail conditions permit, we will take the 0.6 mile spur trail to Mt. Cammerer. Total hike mileage 12.6, rated moderate to difficult. Some folks may choose to just go partway up the AT, for a slightly easier hike. Meet at Cracker Barrel Strawberry Plains, 1510 Cracker Barrel Lane, Knoxville, at 8am or at Davenport Gap at 9:15am. RT drive 110 miles= $11.00.
