As part of the Smoky Mountains 75th Anniversary celebration, the Carolina Mountain Club will be holding a series of three guided hikes on the North Carolina side of the Smokies this spring. All three hikes are free to the public.
The first hike is on 4/26/2009 and will take you along the Bradley Fork Trail.
Hikers will meet at 10 a.m. at the Bradley Fork Trailhead located at the far end of D loop in the Smokemont Campground.
This hike will follow the Bradley Fork until it meets the Smokemont Loop Trail. Hikers will then climb steadily up and then down the other side of Richland Mountain. The group will visit Bradley Cemetery before returning to the campground.
This hike is 6.2 miles with 1400 feet of climbing. The club is asking that each participant carry a pack with lunch, two quarts of water, a rain jacket and a warm fleece. In addition, you'll need hiking boots and good hiking socks. Hike leader: Ashok Kudva. For more information, please call 828-698-7119 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
