Wednesday September 21 – BSF Twin Arches Loop, TN – Joint hike with Upper Cumberland Chapter. Short hike: 4.6 mile moderate to strenuous (stairs) loop to the Arches and back. Long hike: This is a 6 mile moderately strenuous loop hike due to the flights of stairs and the continual climb from Charit Creek. The Twin Arches are the largest arches in Big South Fork and quite possibly in the Eastern United States. The South Arch is the highest at 100 feet. We will descend past Charit Creek Lodge. Then we follow Charit Creek to Jake’s Place, the remains of a mid-1800’s house and farm. After Jake’s we’ll pass through several huge rock houses along the base of the cliffs as we wind our way back to the cars. Depart 7:30 am CDST from the Crossville Cracker Barrel rear parking lot SW corner. Gas cost $7. Contact hike coordinator, text/call 931-267-2243.
