What: Halloween Stone Door Trip

When: October 31,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Target Hickory Hollow
5330 Cane Ridge Rd
Antioch, TN 37013

Hi Everybody,
Unfortunately I can't go on the Nov.7th trip, but my friend Carla and I can go for the Oct.31st weekend. If anyone would like to join us, please let me know. It is about a 2 hr trip to get there from the Target at Hickory Hollow, so if we get an early start, we'll be able to get a good day of hiking in. I was thinking we would take the Stone Door Trail (.9 miles easy)to the Big Creek Gulf Trail(4 mi difficult) to the Alum Gap campsite. It looks like we can drop our packs there and camp and also go to Greeter Falls as a side trip on either Sat. or Sun and then hike out on Big Creek Rim Trail (3.2 miles easy). I'm getting most of my info from www.backpackcamp.com ,Tennessee,Savage Gulf. You'll have to look up the site, it won't connect you from here. There is info at this website also, http://orig.jacksonsun.com/outdoors/stonedoorinfo.shtml . I'm not sure what time we would get back on Sun., but it looks like there might be a shorter route out on the Laurel Trail(2.9 miles easy about 2 hrs) if you need to leave early. The weather looks like it might be a little wet on Sat. with a 40% chance of showers and the temps at 60 for the high and 46 for the low, but on Sun. it's says it's going to be sunny with 60 for the high and 44 for the low. We could also see about leaving early Fri. afternoon with the option for folks to meet us Sat. morning. Please email me if you have any questions about the trip.
