East Tennessee

Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Curry Mountain, Meigs Mountain, and Meigs Creek Trails.  The hike will be from the Metcalf Bottoms parking area near the Curry Mountain trailhead.  We will hike Curry Mountain trail to Meigs Mountain trail, about 3.3 miles gaining about 1100 feet.  Then we will hike Meigs Mountain trail to Meigs Creek trail, about 1.9 miles losing about 400 feet.  And finally we will take the Meigs Creek trail to the Sinks parking lot, about 3.5 miles losing about 800 feet. On the Meigs Creek trail we will lose about 700 feet then regain about 200 feet before losing the final 300 feet. The total distance is about 8.8 miles. The hike is rated as moderate due to both the distance and elevation change. We recommend shoes to wear to and from the hike plus sturdy hiking shoes, other weather appropriate clothing, a snack, a drink and a camera. This is a car shuttle hike.  We will leave one vehicle in the Sinks parking lot to shuttle drives back to the Metcalf Bottoms parking lot where the hike started.  We will meet in the parking area of Browns Shopping Center (near the Sonic) on Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryville at 8:45am ET and we will leave promptly at 9am ET.  Pre-registration is required.
