For those of you that live in the Knoxville area, Friends of the Smokies and Blue Ridge Mountain Sports have teamed up to offer two Hiking 101 Seminars next month.
Each one night class will help beginners understand what to do to make their first forays into the great outdoors successful. Topics include the “10 plus essentials,” proper layering, and footwear selection. Both seminars are free and will be offered only once in each location this spring.
The first seminar will be held on March 15, 2011 at the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports store at the Village Green Shopping Center in Knoxville.
The second, to be held on March 22, 2011, will be at the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports store in the Kingston Pike Shopping Center.
