What we'll do
Feb 10 - Saturday - Rocky Flats Trail - Leader: Richard & Brenda Harris - 2 or 5 miles, moderate. This hike of the Cherokee Hiking Club will go in from the Doublecamp Creek end of this trail in the Citico Wilderness one mile to the old Hollinghead homestead site. There Chris Hollinghead (teacher at Tellico Plains HS and grandson of the original owners) with his father and uncle will tell us of his childhood growing up at this site. Afterwards, those who wish a short hike can return to the cars along Doublecamp Creek Rd. Those who want a longer hike will follow the recently refurbished trail for 5 miles to Warden Fields where we will have our shuttle vehicles. Afterwards, we may go to a restaurant in Tellico Plains for supper. Contact Richard Harris at [masked] to sign up or for questions. Meet behind the Cherohala Skyway Visitor Center in Tellico at 9 AM to set up the shuttle and carpooling. Non-members are welcome.
What to bring
Day pack with water, lunch. Raincoat just in case. Wear sturdy shoes, preferable hiking books or trail shoes. We will be crossing a few small creeks.
Important to know
Chris Hollinghead will have a few copies of his book PaPaw Tales available for sale
