This is shaping up to be a good snow year so hopefully it will work out for this weekend. However, I can't possibly predict the weather! So, here's how the annual snow hike typically works.

I'll evaluate the weather the week of the hike and choose a location that has snow. This could be something local such as the Foothills Trail or we could go to higher elevation. I just can't put a location at this time. We'll just have to see how the weather plans out and you'll be able to adjust your RSVP accordingly. I will attempt to keep the mileage and elevation reasonable. And, if we simply can't find any snow on this particular weekend, we'll reschedule.

Please ensure that you are prepared for winter conditions. You must be an experienced hiker to attend. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to message or call me at[masked].

All COVID safe practices will apply. Plan on social distancing and bring some type of approved face coverings.

ROAN HIGHLANDS IT IS! The forecast is not favorable for anything close and I know there will be snow at Roan.

Shuttle from Mountain Harbour will be at 10 am so most of you can drive up Saturday morning. You can come Friday but the hostel is booked. Two rooms are open in the inn and you’ll need to call soon to reserve. [masked]. You can also camp in the campground. Tell them you’re with me when you call. Address: 9151 -US19E Roan Mountain, Tn 37687

Saturday we’ll shuttle to Carver’s Gap and hike to Bradley Gap. 8.7 miles. Plenty of trees for hammocks and tent sites.

Sunday we’ll hike 6.5 miles back to our cars.
