Let's take a trip to Big Creek Trail in the Smokies. This hike will be approximately 10 miles out and back. RSVP's for this hike will open on Wednesday March 20th at 8:00 PM.
Here is a link (http://hikingthecarolinas.com/bigc.php) with more information about this trail.
We will meet at Earthfare in Westgate Plaza at 9:00 AM, arrange carpooling and depart for the trail by 9:15. It is approximately a 50 mile (1 hour) drive to the trailhead. I anticipate arriving at the trailhead around 10:15.
We should be back to the trailhead around 3:30 - 4:00 PM and return to Earthfare around 5:00 - 5:30 PM. These are not definite times but just estimates so plan accordingly so we don't need to rush back for any appointments or other engagements.
Bring plenty of water, food, and cash for your driver.
I'm afraid dogs are not allowed in the Smokies.
