Each year on Memorial Day weekend, we plan a joint hike with the very active Carolina Mountain Club, just 1 year older than us, but also instrumental in helping promote the creation of our Great Smoky Mountains National Park! This year, we will hike from Cosby on Gabes Mountain Trail, heading west. We’ll stop at Hen Wallow Falls, for the short and steep descent to view the falls, then head onward CS 34. After a pleasant lunch at the campsite, we’ll go back the way we came. Hike 9.6 miles, ascent 2000 ft. Rated Moderate. Let's make an effort to share some time with this other wonderful Club! Meet at Cracker Barrel, 1510 Cracker Barrel Lane off of the Strawberry Plains exit 398 at 8AM, or at the Cosby Hiker Parking Lot at 9:15AM. RT carpool mileage 120 miles = $12.00.

Leaders: Diane Petrilla and Cindy McJunkin

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
