Promoting the development and enjoyment of Tennessee trails.
We will meet at the parking lot above the boat dock where the hike begins. Hike is approximately a 7 mile loop. We will hike 2.5 miles of rolling hills, followed by a half-mile long boardwalk across the Dismal Swamp. The next 0.7 miles goes up a fairly steep hill to the fire tower where we will have lunch. After lunch we have another 4 miles of mostly moderate hills until we finish back at the boat dock. It is considered to be a moderate to difficult hike. Good boots are suggested due to a sometimes swampy area near the end of the hike along the lake. Also bring hiking poles if available and plenty of water, a snack and a lunch. Rain will cancel. Registration is required.
