Explore the scenic Norris Watershed. The five-mile hike, rated moderate, goes by the Clear Creek spring that’s the source of water for the town of Norris and then goes up a series of trails that lead to High Point, the watershed’s peak elevation. The route then goes downhill via Upper White Pine Trail and Raccoon Run Trail to its connection with Hi Point Trail.
The weather is variable; we recommend hiking poles, shoes to wear to and from the hike plus sturdy hiking shoes, other weather appropriate clothing, a snack, a drink and a camera.
After the hike plan on stopping on the way back for a meal and refreshments.
Meet at 9:15 a.m. in front of Norris Middle School near the town center. We’ll caravan to Lower Clear Creek Road,drive about a mile down it, and park behind the town’s water treatment plant and water tower. For more information, contact trip leader Bob Fowler.
