River Bluff Trail - Norris Dam  We will park at the trailhead on Dabney Road and hike the lower section of the trail along Norris River, less than 2 miles each way.  The walk along the river is relatively flat.  Where we will turn around the trail goes up the bluff to make a loop.  The total distance, about 4 miles, is about the same either way.  The hike difficulty is rated easy.  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.  We will meet at the Central Baptist Church of Bearden parking lot for carpooling and leave at 9:00 am ET and stop at Ingles Market, 215 Cedar Lane in North Knoxville, leaving at 9:15 am ET for those that prefer to meet there.  Also, you may meet us at the southeast end of the Wal-Mart parking lot at the I-75 / State 61 intersection near Norris, leaving there at 9:45 am ET.  Please bring $$ for carpooling.  This is a short hike.  On the way home, depending on the time, we may stop for lunch and/or beverages at Harrison’s Grill and Bar in Clinton.  For additional information on this hike  contact Tom Cressler before March 29.
