East Tennessee

Knoxville Urban Wilderness - Western perimeter-Whaley-Will Skelton Trails.   This hike is between 5 and 6 miles,  mostly through the woods, with rolling hills, none very steep.  About 2 miles will be  along the French Broad River with good views.  The hike is rated easy.  We recommend shoes to wear to and from the hike plus  sturdy hiking shoes,  other appropriate clothing,  a snack, a drink and a camera. We will meet in the Central Baptist Church of Bearden parking lot for car-pooling and leave at 9:00 am.  If you prefer to meet us at 9:30 am at the trailhead located at the parking lot at the end of McClure Lane.   McClure Lane is on the  left just after you pass the parking lot for Meads Quarry.  Don’t  forget to bring $$$ for carpooling. After the hike plan on stopping on the way back for a meal and refreshments,  perhaps at Calhoun’s  or somewhere in South Knoxville.   For specific information, please call Tom Cressler.
