Promoting the development and enjoyment of Tennessee trails.
Saturday, September 24 — Bald River Falls Trail, 9.6 miles, moderate. This trip includes a pleasant drive along the picturesque Tellico River and, if there is water, a stop at Baby Falls to watch kayakers spurt over this not-insignificant waterfall, possibly without any hitches. The hike starts out a bit upriver at Baby Falls’ much bigger and very spectacular brother, Bald River Falls. We’ll jump up to the top of the falls and then follow the mostly level trail along the pretty mountain river to a small waterfall and large cascades. Meet at Food City in Ooltewah, east off I-75 Exit 11, at 8:30 EDT. Please register with hike leader Betsy Darken, 423-718-2060.
