The White Rocks signaled early settlers that they were about twenty miles, or a day’s journey, from Cumberland Gap. Today it provides a destination for determined hikers (who will climb 1700' in 3 miles) with a wonderful view of Powell River valley and beyond. After leaving White Rocks we will visit Sand Cave, a huge rock shelter carpeted in fine sand. Then we will head back down the mountain. The hike is 9 miles rated moderate. Meet at Outback Steakhouse on Merchants Dr. at 7:55 a.m. Drive 140 miles RT @ 7 cents = $9.80.

Leaders: David Smith and Val Beers

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
