Saturday February 17, 2018 Rained out, to be rescheduled Smokies Bradley Fork (Smokemont) to Chasteen Creek and back day hike Location: Great Smoky Mountains National Park Distance: 11.2 miles Elevation Gain: 2500 ft Rating: Strenuous Pace: Standard Due to time on the trail, car shuttle, and distance we are changing from the original Camel Gap hike. We will still spend the night on Friday night, the 16th, in Bryson City, hike on Saturday and return home after the hike is finished. If anyone is interested in doing AT to Dry Sluice to Bradley Fork at Smokemont campground with Ken Smith, please let him know. This is approximately 13+ miles. Hike leader is Wayne Chambers, 423 593-3717.
Saturday February 24, 2018 Fiery Gizzard Location: Tracy City, TN Distance: 4.5 miles Rating: Moderately Easy Pace: Standard Driving Time: 1 hour This can often be a great hike for admirers of icicles – LARGE icicles. And on a couple of trips we have been lucky enough to have had a wonderful snow hike. So, we’ll just watch the weather and hope. We’ll do the Day Loop, with the additional side trip on down the gorge to Sycamore Falls, and to the base of those huge overhangs where the Dog Hole Trail begins (or is it “used to begin”?). Late lunch at Papa Ron’s in Monteagle is a distinct possibility. Hike leader is John Rowland, firstname.lastname@example.org.
