This high elevation hike should provide a respite from valley heat. After arranging a shuttle from Newfound Gap to Clingmans Dome, we will start at the highest point in the Smokies and on the AT--Clingmans Dome at 6443'. We will hike North through AT sections that our club maintains and through a beautiful conifer forest accented by moss covered logs and ferns. Meet at Newfound Gap at 9 AM at the NC/TN State Line sign. Allow a few extra minutes for summer traffic. Total hike mileage: 8.4 miles, rated moderate. Pre-registration with the leader is required.
