Classic Hikes of the Smokies: August

The Friends of the Smokies Classic Hikes of the Smokies series continues next month with a hike to Mt. Cammerer.

Thursday, Aug 9: Mt. Cammerer
11.4 miles, 3,000 ft. ascent

From Davenport Gap, take the A.T. south for 5.1 miles. Take the Mt. Cammerer Trail for 0.6 mile. Preserving the Mt. Cammerer tower was the beginning of Friends of the Smokies--and who was Arno B. Cammerer anyway? Even your leader calls this a strenuous hike. We'll take it steady and slow. Don't have any plans for the evening.

To register email Hannah Epperson at or call (828) 452-0720.

A donation of $35 to go to the Friends’ Smokies Trails Forever program is requested, and includes a complimentary membership to Friends of the Smokies. A donation of $10 is requested from current Friends of the Smokies members. Members who bring a friend hike for free.
