We will hike a newly re-opened section of the Cumberland Trail and enjoy some late fall views and interesting rock formations. The trail from Sarvis climbs up to the top of the Cumberland Escarpment. We hike along the escarpment to the southwest past a few viewpoints. In a few miles we arrive at the McCloud Mountain area and walk a short way on a road to the Chimney Rock overlook. We’ll enjoy the formations and views for a lunch break and then follow the Cumberland trail a little further west along the road to the turn-around point. On the return we may stop to look at the view at the McCloud porch and then continue retracing our steps along the escarpment and downhill to Sarvis. Hike about 8 miles with 1500 foot elevation gain. Rated Moderate. Meet at 8:00 AM at the Hardee's in Clinton (107 Buffalo Rd). Drive: 60 miles RT {@ 7¢/mile = $4.20}.

Leader: Tim Bigelow
