East Tennessee

Lumber Ridge and Spruce Flats Falls Trails,  We will hike Lumber Ridge trail from the Tremont Environmental Center for 4.1 miles, gaining 1250 feet in the first 2.3 miles then losing 250 feet by the time we reach Buckhorn Gap at the intersection with Meigs Creek and Meigs Mountain trails.  We will then take an unmarked trail to Spruce Flats Falls and from there the Spruce Flats Falls trail to the Environmental Center.  The hike is about 8.2 miles and is moderately difficult.  You will have to cross several small creeks and may get your feet wet.

We recommend shoes to wear to and from the hike plus sturdy hiking shoes, other appropriate clothing, a snack, something to drink and a camera.  After the hike plan on stopping on the way back for a meal and refreshments.

We will meet in the Bearden Central Baptist Church parking lot for car-pooling and leave at 8:30 am, stopping at the Browns Creek Shopping Center parking lot nearest the Sonic at 1707 E Lamar Alexander Pkwy.  This is across the street from the Hardee’s, near the hospital in Maryville.  We will leave there at 9:00 am.  A donation of $5.00 is recommended if carpooling from Brown’s Creek and a donation of $7.00 is recommended if carpooling from Bearden Central Baptist Church.  Contact Tom Cressler to sign up.
