Nashville

 Monthly Meeting,  REI, Brentwood, TN  7:00   TTA Nashville member Diane Manas will do a presentation of the Foothills Trail in South Carolina. The presentation will combine 2 years (the last week in April 2013 & again in 2014) of a 7 day, 6 night, linear 76-mile backpacking trip with TTA friends. April was selected in order to maximize seeing a wide variety of wildflowers at the various elevations traversed along the way. The Foothills Trail extends from Oconee State Park in Mountain Rest SC to Table Rock State Park in Pickens SC. It passes through the Andrew Pickens Ranger District of the Sumter National Forest, Ellicott Rock Wilderness, Whitewater Falls, and Lake Jocassee. The U.S. Forest Service built the section in the Sumter National Forest starting in 1968. Duke Power Company built the middle portion of the trail as a recreational resource in conjunction with its Bad Creek pumped storage hydroelectric project. The trail is remote in some areas but does cross over roadways, and is very well maintained by volunteers of the Foothills Trail Conference.

Mossy Ridge Trail, Warner Parks. West Nashville, TN. 4.5 miles, moderate.  Did you receive some really cool hiking gear for the holidays. If it is a wearable, today would be a good day to give then a test run (err, walk) on this 4.5 mile hike on the Mossy Ridge Trail in the Percy Warner side of Warner Park. The terrain is rated moderate for the numerous rolling hills we will ascend and descend along the way. Sturdy hiking shoes/boots are recommended for the terrain because it is uneven with roots, rocks and ruts. Bring snacks, water and the 10 Essentials. We will meet at 10:00pm CT in the “Deep Well” area of the park. Rain/ice will cancel this outing.   DIRECTIONS: to get to Deep Well from Nashville: head west on Hwy 70 (aka West End Ave). In Belle Meade (after you have crossed over Woodmont Blvd, passed Publix then Kroger on the right, and the Belle Meade Mansion on the left), Hwy 70 splits. Take the left side, which puts you on Hwy 100. Go approx 1.8 miles and turn left into the grey stone entrance, drive to the end/t-intersection (approx 1 mile) – you’re in Deep Well. If on Hwy 100 and you reach Old Hickory Blvd, you’ve gone too far.
