Join Friends of the Smokies and fitness expert Missy Kane again for another series of hikes this spring. Each Wednesday throughout the month of April, Missy and Friends will be hiking a different trail in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Ms. Kane was an Olympic runner and a Pan American Games medalist.
"Get on the Trail" is a great opportunity for people who are new to the area, or are new to hiking, as well as people who just want to know more about the Park.
The dates for the spring series are: April 6, 13, 20 & 27, 2011.
This year Friends & Missy will take participants on trails to see wildflowers, waterfalls, and parts of the N.C. side of the Smokies. The hikes are led by Hiking Fitness Expert Missy Kane, Great Smoky Mountains National Park rangers and volunteers.
The cost is $15.00 per hike, and maps/goodies will be provided by Friends & Missy. Beginning in March 2011, you must register by calling 865-541-4500 (Covenant Call Center) as space is limited.
Since the series started, Get on the Trail with Friends and Missy has raised more than $80,000 that has supported the preservation and protection of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
