The folks at Wilderness Wildlife Week have announced the hiking schedule for the upcoming annual event, which will take place during the week of January 12-19, 2013.
Considered to be the ultimate Smoky Mountain experience, Wilderness Wildlife Week is a series of activities designed to connect visitors with the great outdoors. Participants will learn from more than 100 experts who will share their knowledge of the outdoors in more than 175 seminars, lectures and hands-on workshops.
You'll also have the opportunity to get closer to nature with your choice of more than 50 guided walks and hikes this year. Some of the highlights on this years' schedule include Mt. Cammerer, Abrams Falls, Albright Grove, the Original Road to the Walker Sisters homestead, Rainbow Falls, as well as a couple of off-trail hikes to Greenbrier, Meigs Mountain and Round Top. You can check out the full hiking schedule by clicking here.
Hikers may also want to note the relatively stringent sign-up procedures.
