For this beautiful winter hike, we will begin behind the old CCC tearoom at the East Campground area of Norris Dam State Park. We hike down a brief section of the Christmas Fern Trail, pick up the Tall Timbers Trail, then the Lakeview Trail. This trail is situated several hundred feet above Norris Lake, so views are expansive in the winter, and the ascents and descents are generally gradual. We will do this entire trail, then pick up Highpoint Trail, and hike down on the north leg of the Lakeside Loop Trail. Then we will retrace our steps back to our cars. 10.9 miles. Rated Moderate. Meet at Hardees, 107 Buffalo Rd., Clinton, TN (near I-75) at 8 am, or at Norris Dam SP Tearoom Parking Lot (East Campground side) at 8:45am.
