Off Trail Hike: Foothills Parkway Right-of-Way from the Glades to Emerts Cove

  • 05/13/2023


  • For member hike registrations
  • For non-member hike registrations

As there is substantial interest in using the unbuilt portion of the Foothills Parkway right-of-way property as a trail instead of a road, on this hike we will explore a route from the Glades community in Gatlinburg to the Emerts Cove community in Pittman Center. The hike will be totally off-trail with some steep uphill and downhill climbs, some areas of thick vegetation, and numerous blowdowns to negotiate. Off-trail hiking experience is required for this hike of around 6 miles, rated difficult. Group size will be limited.

Leaders: Ed Fleming and Hiram Rogers
