ALERT: The Soddy-Daisy Chapter of the TTA has changed its name to the Scenic City Chapter and will post its hikes under this new name starting in July.
Tuesday, June 7 — Grundy Forest Day Loop and Lone Rock Loop around Grundy Lakes, South Cumberland State Park, Tracy City, 3.5 miles, moderate due to some rough footing. Wear sturdy hiking boots and bring hiking sticks, water and lunch. We will see giant hemlocks, waterfalls and cascades and the junction of the Big and Little Fiery Gizzard Creeks. We will also enjoy views of Grundy Lakes and see the historical coke ovens built in 1883. We will have our lunch at one of the picnic tables overlooking Grundy Lakes.
