We will explore an interesting area on a beautiful autumn day. This hike will begin on the Gibson Gap Trail, also known locally as the Boy Scout Trail, in the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park. After a long traverse, we will quickly climb to the top of the prominent ridge that formed such a formidable barrier to the early settlers of the region, where we will head west to connect with the Lewis Hollow Trail to return to the trailhead, forming a loop of about 10.5 miles. Rated moderate. Meet at Hardee’s-107 Buffalo Road, Clinton, TN. Exit 122 off I-75. Turn left off the exit ramp then left at the first red light. Leave at 8 a.m. Driving distance to our destination is 57 miles. At $0.10 per mile, suggested reimbursement to driver = $11.40. Driving time 1hr 15 min.

Leader: Brian Worley
