Wednesday – Norris City Watershed Park, Norris, TN. Joint hike with Upper Cumberland Chapter
May 25 @ 7:30 am – 3:00 pm
Long Hike: This is 8 mostly easy miles combining Clear Creek, White Oak and Cliff trails. We’ll hike the Clear Creek Trail after lunch. The Cliff Trail is moderate due to elevation changes with views of Norris Dam, the river and lots of wildflowers. Short Hike: Hikers will turn around at the 2.5 mi mark then wander the museum before we all go to lunch. We will start at the Grist Mill next door to the Lenior Museum. On the Clear Creek Trail we’ll see an old weir and stream gauging station, the “kissing tree”, G. Taylor Mill site, an old millrace, some stream crossings (may need water shoes), a large spring inside a fenced concrete structure, and other weir stations. Watch for wild flowers along the way. A wildlife watering hole and CCC foundations are also there. The museum is open on Wednesdays and is fascinating. We’ll eat lunch at the Clinch River Brewery. Bring water and snacks. Depart from Dorton UMC, 3405 Hwy 70 East, Crossville at 7:30am CDST. Carpool fee is $7.00.
