CT: Board Camp Creek
March 25 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm
Saturday, March 25 — Cumberland Trail: Board Camp Creek, 7-8 miles, moderate. Short shuttle required. We’ll start at the Heiss Mountain trailhead, following this beautiful trail as it makes its way over to Board Camp Creek and down the creek almost all the way to Big Soddy Creek. We’ll get good views of the creek, especially as it gets more rambunctious, and we’ll also head up and down various bluffs and pass through lovely woods. At one point we’ll be ducking under/through a waterfall cascading down from above, at another point ascending wooden stairs to get up and around a cliff, and finally crossing the creek to follow a well-travelled former road for about a mile to the parking lot. Water shoes may be needed. Check the weather forecast and put on appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, and insect repellent as needed. 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 Tammy Hendrick at 315-949-8187.
