Off Trail Hike: Huggins Creek

  • 06/17/2023


  • For member hike registrations
  • For non-member hike registrations

Escape the summer heat with an excursion through the wild and rugged Huggins Creek watershed. We'll begin at Clingmans Dome and descend the Forney Creek Trail to Campsite 69, making a quick stop along the way to ride the Forney Slide. At the campsite, we'll leave the trail and turn back uphill, following Huggins Creek for a little over three miles to the AT. There will be plenty of opportunity to get wet as we pass by secret cascades, deep pools, water slides, and one big waterfall. We'll spend a full day exploring one of the most incredible streams in the Smokies. E-mail the leader for meet-up location and time.

Leader: David Sands
