The latest edition of the Cub Report from the Great Smoky Mountains Association announced an off-trail hike in the Greenbrier area as their hike of the month for November.
On Saturday, November 19th, Carey Jones will lead a Naturalist Ramble on the Rhododendron Creek Trail, a trail that's no longer maintained by the Park Service. There are several waterfalls on the trail, as well as some old home sites. The hike is considered easy, although there are 1 or 2 creek crossings without foot logs, and is an approximately 4-mile round trip hike. For those interested, the GSMA asks that you meet at the Greenbrier Ranger Station no later than 10 a.m., and that you bring some water and a snack, and a hiking stick.
There is a $10 fee for adults and children 12 and under are free. There is a limit of 20 participants. For reservations call 865.436.7318 ext 222 or 254.
