For this classic fall hike, we will start at the Cosby hiker parking area, taking Low Gap Trail for a steep but beautiful climb up to the AT, seeing some amazing old growth trees along the way. We may see "South bounders" on a short stretch of the AT, until we reach the Mt. Cammerer spur trail. The Mt. Cammerer Fire Tower, lovingly restored and picturesque, offers stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains, which hopefully will be showing some Fall color. Elevation gain 2800 ft. 11.4 miles. Rated Difficult. Meet at Cracker Barrel Strawberry Plains at 8 am or at Low Gap TH at 9:15 am. Drive 115 miles RT {@ 0.10/mile = $11.50}.

Leader: Diane Petrilla
