Tuesday, November 7 — McGill Creek Section of the Cumberland Trail, moderate 5.6 miles, out and back, el. gain 410’. We will start at the Roaring Creek trailhead near Dayton. This is a forest trail and hopefully the trees will be showing fall colors. The trail initially parallels Brayton Mountain Road with stone steps, a couple of water crossings and a very short section actually on the road. At 1.1 miles the route crosses the road and gradually descends into the McGill Creek Gulf, alternating between old roadbed and single-file sections. At 2.2 miles the creek is reached and shortly after that the bridge. There are beautiful views of the creek from the bridge and the creek bank. The trail to the falls is across the bridge and to the right. From the bridge to the falls the terrain is rocky with ups and downs. At 2.8 miles, we will reach a spur that will take us 200 feet down to the falls and the end of the trail. Bring hiking poles for the rocks and creek crossings as well as rain gear, snacks, and water. For carpooling/caravanning, meet at the Durham Street parking lot (ball fields) off Dayton Pike in Soddy-Daisy at 8.30 am ET. https://bit.ly/3Qjdc0S Please register with hike leader Delores Ladd, 214-422-7206 (text only) or email@example.com.
