As part of the year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Jerry Span from the Fontana Hiking Club has organized a program called “75 Hikes on the 75th”. As the name would imply, there will be 75 organized hikes in the Smoky Mountains throughout 2009.

Below are the six hikes scheduled for July:
July 4. Anthony Creek / Russell Field / AT / Twentymile
July 11. Metcalf Bottoms / Little Brier Gap / Little Greenbrier / Laurel Falls
July 12. Beech Gap / Balsam Mtn to Tri Corner / AT to Inadu Knob / Snake Den Lodge
