Join THOG in hiking the loop around Occoneechee Mountain that takes you over some minimal steep terrain. Side trips on the Brown Elfin Knob and Overlook trails and the summit road take you through mature oak forest and to nice scenic views. This will be a good way to start your Saturday morning.

We will hike approximately 3.5 miles this morning. This will be a relatively slow to moderate paced hike at around 2 miles an hour. It's a good hike for beginners. Be sure to bring water to stay hydrated and snacks if you wish. It will be a bit chilly so bring a jacket.
