Tuesday, October 31 — Trails at Woodcock Climbing Area, around 3 miles, moderate, about 400’-500’, lollipop. This relatively new climbing area, not far from Dunlap, was developed by the Southeastern Climbers Coalition, which also developed Denny’s Cove. While the primary purpose of the trails is to provide cliff access to climbers, they are also open to hikers. We will see awesome cliffs, great views, a freestanding rock tower, and (if there’s water) a small yet beautiful waterfall. Starting at the top of the plateau, we will take a trail down to the trail that putters along the bottom of the cliffs. Yes, we’ll also have to hike back up to the top, but we’ll just take it slow. For carpooling/ caravanning, meet at the Durham Street parking lot by the ball fields, just off Dayton Pike in Soddy-Daisy at 8.30 am ET. https://bit.ly/3Qjdc0S Please register with hike leader Betsy Darken, (423) 718-2060. Carpool gas cost: $3.
