Cumberland Mountain Wildflower Walk
September 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Description: This is a joint outing for TNPS and TCWP. We will have an opportunity to see fall wildflowers on the Cumberland Mountain ridgetop and see views. As usual hikers may turn around at any point, but most flowers will be on top. We will hike from a trailhead (Sarvis) which is about halfway up the mountain. The climb is a about 1,000 feet from the trailhead to the top.
Meeting Place: Dollar General on TN 63 east of La Follette at 10 am eastern time. It is on the southeast side of a crossroad with Greene Lane to the north and Calhoun Rd to the south (115 Calhoun Rd.). It is about an hour from Oak Ridge.
Difficulty: About 4 miles on a good trail (round trip) but a steep climb of about 1,000 feet.
Facilities: At meeting place.
Lunch: Bring water, lunch, and bug spray.
