Stroll through the beautiful Spruce-Fir ecosystem of Tennessee and North Carolina!
This is a great trip to escape the heat and enjoy great views of Tennessee and NC while hiking through the cool and breezy Spruce-Fir ecosystem. If weather does not want to cooperate, have no fear, the midway point is a stone shelter at Double Spring Gap with a great view into NC. This hike descends on the Appalachian Trail to a shelter used for overnight hikers. The hike has the opportunities for phenomenal views during quality weather days but keep in mind, we are hiking in a temperate rain forest so we prepare for dramatic changes that can occur. Our hike is an “out and back” trip and requires substantial climbing on our return.
Bring your own lunch to enjoy outdoors in the mountains, or order a wrap through SMG for $10.
