Norris Watershed hike at Norris, Tn Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Rice Grist Mill off Norris Freeway (US 441). Mill is on Lower Clear Creek Road, turn right just past the Lenoir Museum on US 441. Drive less than a mile to a short gravel road leading to the remains of an old Civilian Conservation Corps camp. Then, return to Lower Clear Creek Road and drive about a mile to the Norris Water Treatment Plant on the left. Park there. Hike will begin on Clear Creek Trail and go past the spring that is Norris’ water supply, onto White Oak Spring Trail and then up Joe’s Trail, to Eli Nine Trail. Other trails in order: High Point Trail to High Point then to Upper White Pine Trail to Raccoon Run Trail to intersect with Hi Point Trail again. It’s all downhill from there. Distance is five miles, more or less. Google “Norris Watershed Map” to download. Register with Bob Fowler.
