Next Meetup

Thursday Tellico Work Trip - Bald River Trail
We will be working on some issues found on the Bald River trail. Some tread repair as well as clearing some trees will be the order of the day. Meet at the Ranger Station at 0800. We will have two crews, personnel permitting, one on tread repair and one clearing trees. Wear sturdy boots, bring lunch and water in a day pack. Bring helmet, gloves, eye protection if you have them. Otherwise we will provide them. This is Wilderness, so crosscut saws, swing blades, loppers, hand saws, and digging tools are in order. If questions, contact Rick Harris at

What we're about

Public Group

The Cherokee Hiking Club is located in Southeast Tennessee with most members coming from the Cleveland area. The club focuses on hikes primarily in the southern part of the Cherokee National Forest, but some hikes also take members to the mountains of Southwest North Carolina and North Georgia as well as trails on the Cumberland Plateau. The club also sponsors bike and canoe trips and many members volunteer hundreds of hours each year maintaining local trails. Dogs are generally permitted on club hikes provided they are well mannered and kept on leash.

We strongly encourage all Meetup members who hike with us regularly to join the club. Dues are only $15 annually per family. We are open to members of all ages who enjoy a down-home family atmosphere. We hold a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month, at either a local restaurant, a member home or an outdoor picnic area when the weather permits. A pot luck or restaurant dinner is enjoyed after each meeting, and often an informative presentation of some kind. If you are interested in joining, please download a membership form from , fill it out and send it in with your dues in check form (made out to the Cherokee Hiking Club) to 198 Crews Drive, Benton TN 37307.
