Gatlinburg Trail - 7/10k
Wanderers, it's time to wander. This coming Saturday, August 18, is our Gatlinburg Trail walk. The 7k walk takes us from Sugarlands Visitor Center to Gatlinburg and back. While in town, we will find some lunch and stamp books at NOC (Natahala Outdoor Center, where our Walk Box is located.) The 10k walk adds the nature trail. Both distances are a hike, in that it is mostly on forest floor, but it is smooth and easy. Come enjoy our Great Smoky Mountain National Park - we are so lucky to live so close! Escape the heat, commune with nature, and enjoy your fellow walkers. The 10k walk will leave Sugarlands Visitor Center at 10 am led by Ann Draper, our Club Treasurer. The 7 walkers will start at 10:30 am with VP Kathryn King as your leader. Sugarlands Visitor Center is at 1420 Fighting Creek Gap Road, Gatlinburg 37738. (Coming from the Townsend side, you do not drive into Gatlinburg.) Please reply and let us know which distance you will be walking.
