East Tennessee

Baker Hollow Branch to Mizell Bluff - part of the  East Lakeshore Trail System (  Roundtrip about 6 miles.  Starting at the dead end of Antioch Church Road West, follow the dirt road to the trailhead sign and proceed about 3 miles to the bluff.  This trail is gently rolling and easy to the bluff.  Return same route.  This trail has water views and is a nice forest walk.  The bluff is a summer jump off spot for the young at heart.  We will meet at the dead end at 10am.  Any earlier and it might be foggy, blocking the water views. You may preregister with leader, Mark Paulley.
