March 17 – March 19
March 17-19 – Camping in Pickett State Park. Hiking in Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. Joint event with the Murfreesboro Chapter. Marietta Poteet will lead two hikes in Big South Fork NSRRA: Rock Creek Loop and Twin Arches/Charit Creek Loop. Rock Creek Loop is 7.5 miles, rated moderate with several steep sections. It follows an old railroad grade with the potential of some lovely wildflower sections. Twin Arches/Charit Creek Loop is about 6.5 miles with some steep places. We will hike up to two beautiful arches and down to Charit Creek Lodge. Hopefully we’ll see more wildflowers. Both hikes are rated moderate, but both have some steep rocky spots. Please be prepared for some challenging sections. We will camp at Pickett State Park Campground. Marietta has reserved six campsites. Please email Marietta at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for a spot.
