Sarah and Raymond ('Rain Man') on Summer Solstice Eve, ready to hit the trail. Okay, so it was after midnight and thus not really Summer Solstice any longer. At the Eagle Gap trailhead on the Cherohala Skyway.
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, first aid, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
