  • This is loop hike from Cades Cove taking the Anthony Creek trail to Russell Field and over to the AT.  We will take Bote Mountain back to the Anthony Creek Trail.

    This will be a 13 mile hike.  If there is enough interest we can add a hike over to Rocky Top before heading off the AT back to the campground.

    For a map of the trail and elevation, click here.

    You will want to bring your hiking poles, snacks, lunch, and plenty of water.  

    Bote Mountain is a rocky trail, so you will want your hiking poles.

    You will want to meet at the area where the picnic and bathrooms are located. See map above.

    You have to have hiked an 8 mile hike with me or convince of your hiking skills to go on this hike.
