Sawnee Mountain

About The Trail: I have yet to hike this trail, so look for a volunteer who is familiar with these trails to be the group leader. So...please send me an email if you'd like to volunteer!

From what I've heard and the photos that I've seen, this looks like a lovely hike that includes some good scenery and a couple of old mine shafts. There is about four miles of trails, so the hike should take about two hours. We'll travel at a good pace, so this hike should be for intermediate to advance hikers. Please make sure to bring some food, water, and snacks. Though hiking sticks may be helpful to some, no other equipment is needed. And as always, no dogs or children.

Meeting Spot: I have posted Bettis Tribble Gap Rd as the meeting space, but will finalize or update this based on the recommendation of this hike's leader.

Carpool Options: I will run one carpool; we'll meet at the Best Buy near North Point Mall (exit 9 off of 400) at 10:15am. Please email me if you'd like to carpool with me, or send a group email if you'd like to get a group to carpool from a different location.

Note: Carpool info will be updated the Friday prior to the event both on the website and via an email sent to all members.

      Too bad you weren’t with the group. I thought you look familiar on the trail. Were you wearing a gray/pink knitted hat?

      Gray and red! Close enough! I'm still getting energy back from having the flu, so I slept longer than I thought I would. Next time :)

    Here is a link to the trail map - http://goo.gl/DkRyu1. I recently hiked there, but only the short loop from the parking to the observation deck. This is well marked trail, so it is hard to get lost even if you are not familiar with the hike. BTW - the view from the top is gorgeous. Do not forget to bring your camera!
