Beginner Backpacking

Saturday, May 4, 2019

If you want to try backpacking for the first time, but you don't know where to begin or you don't have the gear, this program is for you! The first day's hike will traverse through shady woodlands with crystal clear mountain creeks. The easy trail will eventually lead us to the striking 50 foot Greeter Falls. We will stay overnight at a backcountry campground near Greeter. On day two, we will hike on a scenic gulf rim trail to one of the most beautiful vistas in Middle Tennessee, Stone Door. The fee includes transportation and instruction. Gear rentals such as tents, packs, sleeping pads, stoves, cook sets, and headlamps are available at no extra charge. All participants must attend the pre-trip meeting. Space is limited and reservations are required by calling 615-217-3017.
