Strenuous day hike at beautiful Bearwaller Gap in Carthage, TN. Meet at Home Depot in Lebanon at 8 or at the trailhead by Defeated Creek Recreation Area at 9:30.
We will hike 5.6 miles to Tater Knob Overlook, eat lunch, then hike back the way we came. Sights will include overlooks of Cordell Hull Lake, rock gardens, an old spring, and a very nice camp site complete with privy.
If you do not want to do the full 11.2 miles, there will be an option to shuttle. Please choose whether you want to hike the full 11.2 miles in and out or shuttle to do one way so that carpooling can be planned accordingly.
Be sure to bring plenty of water and Deet! (there were a lots of ticks a few weeks ago when I did it).
Be sure to bring gas money for your driver if you carpool and for optional dinner/beverages after!
*Note* I will be at the trailhead as I am staying at Defeated Creek Saturday night. Steve will be leading the group from the Lebanon Home Depot.
