We will start at Newfound Gap and hike to the Boulevard Trail with a stop at the Jump Off for those interested. From there we will take the Boulevard trail to Myrtle Point followed with a stop at the Cliff Tops. We will eat lunch on top of Mt. LeConte. Bring money for t-shirts, etc. at the LeConte store. After lunch we will head down Alum Cave to the parking lot. This is a shuttle hike which will require everyone to be willing to help shuttle. We will meet at Alum Cave trailhead at 7:00 am. This will allow us to avoid all the parking issues at the trailhead. From Alum Cave parking lot we will shuttle to Newfound Gap to start the hike. Number of hikers will be limited due to shuttle.

Hike is difficult. Distance by the end of the day will be 14 miles.
Pre-registration with the leader is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.
