This hike into Little Cataloochee will entail off-trail exploration of some of the remote homesites of the former inhabitants of the three major tributaries of Little Cataloochee Creek. We will wander over the ridges and down the streams separating the early nineteenth century farms of the Bennett, Woody, and Conard families. Considerable detritus from the homesites will be examined along the way. Leaders will bring photos of the former cabin and barn structures to compare with the current sites. Hike is rated moderate. Previous off-trail experience encouraged. Please contact trip leader to get details, including meeting time and place.
Pre-registration 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.
Leaders: Ken Wise and Mike Knies
