The latest Cub Report from the Great Smoky Mountains Association is announcing that an early spring hike is scheduled for next month. This is your chance to join Ranger Carey Jones for an exploration into a lesser known area of Greenbrier. False Gap Prong will lead you to an old cemetery and secluded former homesites with some scenic water views along the way. With the relatively mild winter this year, the GSMA expects participants will see some early spring wildflowers as well.
This moderate hike of roughly 2.5 miles will take place on Saturday, March 24th. The GSMA asks that you meet at 10:00 am at the Greenbrier Ranger Station, wear good hiking boots, bring rain gear, water, and a light snack. A hiking stick may be advisable, too.
Participation is limited to 20. Pre-registration is required, along with a $10 fee to cover the cost of the program. Children 12 and under are free. Call 865-436-7318, Ext. 222 or 254 to register.
