FOTS Classic Hikes of the NC Smokies: Boogerman Trail

The Friends of the Smokies "Classic Hikes of the Smokies" series continues next month with a hike on the Boogerman Trail. The 8.6-mile hike will features streams, big trees, artifacts and history.

Learn how the Boogerman Loop got its unique name, walk along old stone walls that once protected gardens and home sites, and visit towering hemlock and tulip trees on the next guided hike with Friends of the Smokies. Mountain streams, an old wagon wheel and spring wildflowers await participants of this Classic Hike of the Smokies. Hiking enthusiast and author Danny Bernstein (Hiking North Carolina's Blue Ridge Heritage) will lead this 8.6 mile hike along the Boogerman Loop, interpreting the cultural history of the area. The hike is moderate in difficulty, and has a total elevation gain of 1,800'.
