We will explore a bit of the North Carolina side of the Smoky Mountains as we walk to road/trail up Bradley Fork to campsite 49 at Cabin Flats. Being March, expect to encounter a mild early spring day or an icy chill late winter blast. Hopefully the former, as we spend the day on this 9 mile round trip. There are several cascades to pass on Bradley Fork of the Oconaluftee River. Early spring wildflowers like dwarf crested iris, foam flower, wild geranium, hepatica, yellow mandarin, and others line the trail. A little less than 1000 ft of elevation gain, rated moderate. Total miles 9.8. We will meet at the far end of the Smokemont Campground at 9:30 a.m. Carpool from the old Food City location at 131 N Hall Road in Alcoa leaving at 7:30 a.m. Roundtrip is 124 miles. At 10 cents/miles = $12.40.
