Get on the Trail with Friends & Missy this Spring

Spring is right around the corner and that means wildflowers! Friends of the Smokies hopes that you will join them and Olympian Missy Kane as they hit the trails this April to catch some of the Smokies best blooms.

April 4 | Chimney Tops - Difficult, 3.5 miles

April 11 | Deep Creek and Indian Creek Waterfall Loop - Moderate, 6.5 miles

April 18 | Turkey Pen Ridge to Schoolhouse Gap - Moderate, 7.2 miles

April 25 | Little River Trail - Moderate 8.5 miles

Cost for each hike is $20 per person. A complimentary Friends membership is provided with registration of the entire series.

To prepare for the hikes, Friends of the Smokies suggest doing an aerobic workout 3-4 days/week on a regular basis. Bring day pack, water, snacks, hiking poles, rain gear, appropriate shoes & medications.

Space on the hikes is limited. You must pre-register by calling 865-541-4500. Please call to cancel if you can't make a hike as they do have a waiting list. Also, don't forget about the Friends of the Smokies Classic Hike Series!
