Trip Feb. 6, 2010

Hi Folks,
I'm going to change from the Black Mtn. Brady Mtn. Trails to the Pot Point Loop on the most southern part of the Cumberland Trail. Actually I think it's part of the Prentice Cooper Wildlife Management Area. I feel more comfortable about the camping situation and also the water sources. I apologize if this messes anything up for anybody. The trail is an 11.9 mile loop, so the distance part hasn't changed, and we can still leave from Target at Hickory Hollow at 7:00am.

Here is a link to a map and details and photos. The same map is posted above, though the Pot Point Loop Trail is not identified by name, though the road by the same name is.

    Cynthia done a great job of putting together this trip. It was a great trip with some excellent people. Me and Zoe cannot wait to hit the trails again with them in the future.

    Cynthia did a great job of organizing and leading this event! Prentice Cooper WMA is a great place for both day hikes and over-nighters. It was a great group to hike with!

    I'd like to propose POSSIBLY tweaking the hike route. The Pot Point Loop and the Mullen's Cove Loop form a figure-8, with parking and campsite right in the middle. What if we hike one loop on Saturday without packs, camp back near the cars, then do the other loop on Sunday without packs, and arrive back at cars, ready to drive home? That's about 5 hours of leisurely hiking each day, a good day hike each day, in other words. Just an idea.

    It looks like the Cumberland trail might be the best bet for the weekend of the 5th. I'll do some research on the different areas, but of course if anyone has some suggestions I'd appreciate your input. I would still like to do the Pinhoti trail. I was thinking that might make a nice March trip.

    We could avoid a 5-hour drive and visit our very own Cumberland Trail, just about 2 hours away. Just throwing that into the hat for consideration.

    I may be interested in attending this trip with my oldest son (nearly 14). We recently moved here from upstate NY and were avid Finger Lakes Trail (AT Tributary) and would like to find something here in the south connected to the AT. This Pinhoti trail sounds cool, and is on par with our experiences in NY.
    I used to travel thru the eastern area of AL where the trail runs, and am sure we could be trailbound in less than 4hrs.
