GSMNP – Chestnut Top Trail
May 7 All day
This hike starts at the Townsend “Y”, a popular swimming and tubing spot. The wildflowers are most abundant in April on this trail, but I am positive we will see quite a few remaining on this hike. After we begin hiking up this trail, we will see Thunderhead Mountain on our left between mile 2.0 and 2.5. Thunderhead is the tallest peak in the western part of the Smokies at 5,527 feet.
It is 4.3 miles to the Schoolhouse Gap junction where we will break for lunch. This trail is not overly crowded with hikers. It should be a great hike. Please come and join us.
We will meet at Brown’s Shopping Center near the Sonic at 1807 East Lamar Alexander Parkway at 8:30 AM.
