Let’s explore one of Tennessee’s newest state parks, Rocky Fork. The park is located in NE Tennessee in the rugged Cherokee NF and southeast of Greeneville, TN. We’ll hike to Whitehouse Cliffs for a fabulous view, then do a long loop that takes in the highlights of the park. We’ll hike along creeks, up and down in forests with some beautiful views, and see the Flint Creek battle site, where John Sevier fought the Cherokee in 1789. Most of our trails are old but well- maintained logging roads, so the walking is not difficult. Hike 12 miles total, rated moderately-difficult. Please meet to carpool at Cracker Barrel, Strawberry Plains exit at 7am. We have an early start because the drive is 180 miles RT = $18.00.

Leader: Diane Petrilla
