We will venture to the Massengale home place, around the Kellogg’s Crack Loop, back along the White Oak trail (where we expect to see the Mountain Laurel in bloom), up to the village, then Laurel Branch trail to Laurel Dale Cemetery and return along the quiet village lane. This hike is held in conjunction with the Morgan County Tennessee Mountain Laurel Festival. Don’t feel like hiking the entire 5-miles? Not a problem, as there are multiple opportunities to peel off and head back to the village.
