Clemmer Trail to Benton Falls
October 1, 2022 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Clemmer Trail to Benton Falls, 8.8 miles out-and-back, moderate. The trailhead is off TN-30, just off US 64 at Ocoee Lake. The first part of the trail is the steepest, but the trail gets easier as you go up Chilhowee Mountain. There are a few creek crossings, so you may want to bring water shoes if the water is up. The big reward near the top of the mountain is Benton Falls, which is a really cool 65-foot cascade. After gawking at the falls for a while, we’ll roll down the way we came. Or, if the group wants more variety, the hike can be turned into a loop by returning via Slick Rock and Clear Creek Trails, which adds a mere 0.7 miles to the expedition. Meet at Food City in Ooltewah, right off I-75 exit 11, at 8:30 am ET. Please register with Will Latham, (704) 365-8889.
