We will begin our hike at Hoopers Bald trailhead. This part of the hike is very scenic with a nice overlook. There are very little woods but a nice meadow descends to a highway crossing. We’ll hike on Huckleberry Knob until it ends. On a clear day, we can see forever. Both trails are in and out and should give us about 5.5 miles. For those who want to carpool, we will meet at Denny’s Restaurant off the Watt Road Exit off I-75 South at 8:00 am. We will stop at Tellico Grain Co for their delicious pastries. We should arrive at Hoopers Bald trailhead by 10:00 am. Carpool dollars are requested of all riders. Round trip from Knoxville is about 190 miles. Preregistration is required.
