Sand volleyball, new location this week

Cornerstone Church Athens

New location this week, mixing it up playing at Cornerstone church. Thought it would be nice to try out a different court, as usual everyone is welcome, all skill levels. If the weather looks bad and it’s a rainout I will cancel.

Tesnatee Gap (~9mi)

Tesnatee Gap

Where: 11:00AM at Tesnatee Gap Trailhead (90min drive from Athens). I drive a blue 2017 Mazda 6.

What: We will hike south on the AT for ~ 4.5 miles and then backtrack to Tesnatee Gap. The route is not horrific, but you will get some cardio in the first 2mi as we climb to Crowrock Mtn. I go slightly faster than normal walking pace. If you can easily run a 5k, it should not be a problem. You will be rewarded, however, with great views at the mountaintop (where we will stop for lunch). There are no major climbs after Crowrock Mtn.

We should be back in Athens by 5:30.

Unicoi Gap to Tray Mountain (10mi)

Unicoi Gap

Meet at 11 at Unicoi Gap. I will be driving a blue 2017 Mazda 6.

Hike Description:

This hike is a bit of slog. If you cannot run a 10k, I would not recommend attempting it.

We should return to Athens by 5:30-6:00.
