This high elevation hike should provide a respite from valley heat. After arranging a shuttle at Newfound Gap, we will start our hike at the highest point in the Smokies — 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 8:30 AM at the NC/TN State Line sign (allow a few extra minutes for summer traffic). Total hike mileage: 8.4 miles, rated moderate. Drive distance 16 miles @ 0.10/mile = $1.60.
Leader: Cindy Spangler
