This is our annual joint meeting with the Hiwassee Hiking Club of Athens. We will meet at 6:00 p.m. at the Gee Creek Ranger Station in the Hiwassee Ocoee State Park. We have this spot reserved from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please bring a pot-luck dish. Guests and potential new members are welcome.
We hope to have brief presentations on what is new in the Tellico and Hiwassee/Ocoee Ranger Districts as to recreation and trails and also a brief presentation on SAWS (Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards). Invitations have been extended to presenters but not yet confirmed. Check back here for updates.
Directions from Cleveland: take Highway 64 east to Highway 411 and turn left (north). Go through Benton and cross the Hiwassee River. Go a short ways after that, and turn right on Spring Creek Road. Go until you see the sign for the Hiwassee Ocoee State Park (404 Spring Creek Road), and make a right. The meeting will be held inside the ranger station, in a conference room.
