This hike into the Tremont area of the Smokies begins at the parking lot at the Middle Prong trailhead. We will explore a few sites of the early settlers, logging and CCC camps, and a few railroad company settlements. Walking up the road, we will point out some of the interesting old trails and points of natural interest. The hike will cover about 8 miles of easy walking. Rated moderate due to distance. Meet at Kroger in Alcoa, 244 S. Hall Rd., at the SE end of the building, near the old KARM store, and park around the side of the building at 8:00 am. Alternatively, meet at the trailhead at 8:30 am. Drive 30 miles at $0.70 per mile = $2.80 to carpool. Register on the club website. Leader will meet at the trailhead.

Leader: Brian Worley
