East Tennessee

Knoxville Urban Wilderness - This hike is about 6 miles, mostly through the woods, with rolling hills, one or two are steep but not very long.  The hike is rated as easy.  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.  You can view and print the map of the Urban Wilderness South Loop at the Outdoor Knoxville website (you will need the adobe PDF viewer to view and print the map).  The hike will be on the trails around Ross Marble Quarry and Mead’s Quarry.  The hike will include Imery’s, Turnbuckle, Burnett Ridge, Ross Marble and Tharp Trace trails.  We will meet in the Central Baptist Church of Bearden parking lot for car-pooling and leave at 9:00am ET.  If you prefer you can meet us at 9:30am ET at the parking lot for Meads Quarry (see the map referred to above).  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 about the hike, please call Tom Cressler.

Frozen Head State Park, Wartburg, TN - Come and join us for a hike to Frozen Head after Christmas festivities and lots of food and fun. 
We will start at Shelter C and hike up the Spicewood trail for 2.5 miles.  Then take the Tower Road trail for 1.3 miles to the junction of South Old Mac.  It is another 1/2 mile to the Frozen Head Tower.  Hopefully we will have some great views.  After lunch, we will head down the South Old Mac trail back to Shelter C to our vehicles.  For those wanting to go on a shorter hike, they can hike only the Spicewood trail and turn around go back to the parking lot for a total of 6 miles.  Total miles is 8+.  Contact Carolyn Reeves to pre-register.
