In the past, the Club has offered this hike primarily as a backpacking weekend with a shuttle. Let’s do a day hike this year! This stretch of the Appalachian Trail is considered by some to be the most scenic in the southeast. There are opportunities to see Catawba rhododendron, Grays lilies, and vast mountain views from expansive grassy balds, including Round Bald, Jane Bald and Grassy Ridge Bald. Although it will be a long day of travel, we’ll start early from Knoxville. Hike 11 miles, in and out. Rated Moderate - Difficult. Meet at Cracker Barrel at Strawberry Plains exit, 1510 Cracker Barrel Lane at 6:30am. RT drive 260 miles = $26 carpool fee.

Leader: Diane Petrilla
