Hike Description: We will hike the Tarr Ridge Extravaganza Trail and several short side trails for a total of approximately 4 miles. We will visit 3 very impressive overlooks on mostly ridge top hiking. This hike would be an easy difficulty, but there is a bit of tree hopping, bramble picking and rock scrambling.
GPS track of the hike:
From the I-64/I-75 southern split, drive east on I[masked] mi, exit 98 Combs Mountain Parkway; drive 32 mi to exit 33, Hwy 15 (Slade); from exit go left (see Shell station just to R of the intersection), then immediate left (west), follow Hwy 11/15, 1.5 mi; turn R onto Route 77. Go 5.3 miles (thru the Nada Tunnel) to the intersection with Hwy 715. Turn L (north) staying on 77 for 1.5 miles. Climb steeply and level off at the top of the hill, pull off on R at 2 large Forest Service signs.The hike will begin at 10:00AM. The total distance from the 64/75 split is 60 miles, or approx 1:05.
