Grundy Lakes and Grundy Forest Day Loop near Tracy City. 3.5 total miles. Easy. Grundy Lakes is the site of the Lone Rock Coke Ovens where locally mined coal was converted to coke using convict labor until 1896. The coke ovens remain as a historic reminder of these times. The trail circles the largest of the four lakes and loops by remains of the Coke Ovens. This trail is 1.5 miles and rated easy. After lunch at the Dutch Maid Bakery in Tracy City we will travel to the Grundy Forest Day Loop Trailhead. This short day loop gives an introduction to the Fiery Gizzard area, passing by small cascades, old CCC camp remains, and a couple of nice swimming holes. It meets up with the more difficult and dramatic Fiery Gizzard Trail midway through the loop. This trail is 2 miles and is rated easy.  You will need to bring money for lunch, sturdy walking shoes, and water.

Piney River Trail.  Join us for this great hike.  This trail is a segment of the Cumberland Trail, CT, and was one of several pocket wilderness areas developed by the Hiwassee Land Company of the Bowater Southern Paper Corp. and  later deeded to the State of Tennessee.  While this trail is now part of the CT, It has historically been called “Piney River Trail”.  The elevation change is about 800 feet in a total distance of about 8 moderate to easy miles.  At times the path follows an old narrow-gauge railroad line for easy walking.  The trail runs alongside the Piney River and we’ll enjoy several nifty bridges along the way.  There are waterfalls, gorgeous river views and old growth forest.  There could be some nice wildflowers too.  We will meet to carpool at 7:45am E.T. in the parking lot of Denney’s at the Watt Rd exit off I-75.  Also, we will meet up again at the McDonalds in Spring City at 9:00am ET.  It’s just a short drive to drop a shuttle car and proceed to the trailhead.  Don’t forget your snacks, water, appropriate footwear and $$’s for carpooling.  Pre-register with Rosie.

Chapter program: The Tennessee Ornithological Society has been an active and vibrant group for decades - ten of them! Members and chapters of this group gather data from across the state, producing sightings, bird counts and surveys that contribute to a better understanding of our bird populations and the habitats that support them. Our own Danny Shelton, a Nashville TTA member, has made another great video, this one to recount the TOS’s first hundred years. Some of you watched a preview at the TTA Annual Meeting at Montgomery Bell State Park this last October.  Now we get to see the "final cut" and celebrate the work of a great group whose mission contributes to our enjoyment of Tennessee outdoors. Bring your friends! We’re back at REI this month and we’ll be looking for you.
