|East Tennessee||Ridgetop Loop Trail, Meadow Loop Trail, and Lost Shoe Loop Trail, Fort Loudon State Historical Area, 338 Fort Loudon Road, Vonore, TN. 5 miles. Easy. Starting at the Picnic Grounds, we will hike along the river on the Ridgetop Loop Trail until we connect with the Meadow Loop Trail which has a short leg on the Lost Shoe Loop Trail. Then we will continue on the Meadow Loop Trail, crossing the peninsula until we come to the river again where we will re-connect with the Ridegetop Loop Trail. We will then see mountain, lake, and valley vistas as we ascend to the highest elevation of 975 feet where we will go off-trail to see an Osage Orange tree. There may be an optional detour back to the river bank. After returning to the Picnic Grounds, we will have a meal. TTA will supply the hot dogs, buns, and eating utensils; please bring a dish to share and your own drinks. Optional activities may include swimming, fishing, and touring the Fort and its museum. We will meet at the Picnic Grounds at 10:00 A.M. (ET). Co-leaders are Karen Towle and Robby Paul.||Robby Paul
