Upper Bald River Falls
February 12 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Saturday, February 12 — Upper Bald River Falls and Benton McKaye Trail along Brookshire Creek, 8 – 9 miles out-and-back, moderate. This trail leads deep into the wilderness up the Bald River, which is a crystalline mountain stream at our trailhead, not a river. (Good thing too, as we need to cross it at one point. Bring your water shoes.) We’ll reach a 15-foot waterfall and then trek part of the Benton MacKaye trail along Brookshire Creek for a few miles, pondering the possibility of reaching the TN-NC stateline. Please register with hike leader Betsy Darken, 423-718-2060. Meet at Food City off I-75 Exit 11, at 8:30 am.
