2910 Hobson Pike, Hermitage, TN
As always, please don't RSVP simply to say "No".
Let's enjoy the last weekend of winter with a quick hike of the Volunteer trail (In the city limits of NASHVILLE!). We'll camp at the backcountry site along Percy Priest Lake. Soon spring will arrive and "party boats" will destroy any semblance of wilderness to be experienced.
Meet at the trailhead at 4:30pm and then hike in. We should be back out by 10ish on sunday morning. Breakfast could be arranged if anyone is interested.
The trail is 5.5 miles in to the campsite, which should require a little use of the headlamps. If you've never tried night hiking before, this would be a great opportunity to learn. We should have an easy time finding some firewood and having a little campfire!
This should be an EASY hike! Have some new gear to try out? New to backpacking and uncomfortable heading into the deep wilderness? This is the trip for you!
Please post a message if you may need to borrow gear, need a ride there, etc.
We can cook over the campfire or stoves or both (or you can hike in a pre-made sandwich!) We'll share backpacking stories around the fire, chat about gear and food, and generally enjoy some good company.
Look forward to seeing you there. Message me if you have any questions!
