This is a meetup of the Cherokee Hiking Club. Dues are $15 per year per family. You can attend 2 events free before joining but after that, we would ask that you become a club member and pay your dues. Do you agree to this?
We may post hikes of two sister clubs, the Hiwassee Hiking Club in Athens TN and the Sequoyah Hiking Club in Madisonville TN. Again, if you attend more than a couple of their hikes, you may be asked to join their club and pay their annual dues. OK?
Some hikes may have a limited attendance especially if they occur in wilderness (limit of 10). If you sign up for a hike then cannot go, we ask that you cancel your reservation so others may take your spot. Do you agree to this?
Hi! I love being outside and seeing new areas. I'm also interested in weekday hikes.
The Cherokee Hiking Club is located in Southeast Tennessee with most members coming from the Cleveland area. The club focuses on hikes primarily in the southern part of the Cherokee National Forest, but some hikes also take members to the mountains of Southwest North Carolina and North Georgia as well as trails on the Cumberland Plateau. The club also sponsors bike and canoe trips and many members volunteer hundreds of hours each year maintaining local trails. Dogs are generally permitted on club hikes provided they are well mannered and kept on leash.
We strongly encourage all Meetup members who hike with us regularly to join the club. Dues are only $15 annually per family. We are open to members of all ages who enjoy a down-home family atmosphere. We hold a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month, at either a local restaurant, a member home or an outdoor picnic area when the weather permits. A pot luck or restaurant dinner is enjoyed after each meeting, and often an informative presentation of some kind. If you are interested in joining, please download a membership form fromhttp://cherokeehikingclub.org/membershipform.pdf, fill it out and send it in with your dues in check form (made out to the Cherokee Hiking Club) to 198 Crews Drive, Benton TN 37307.
