Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
GSMNP is the premier hiking location in the southeast, but there is more to it than Alum Cave, Charlies Bunion etc... Come with us and explore some other awesome trails!
This is a 3 day weekend chock full of awesome with 3 hikes for your enjoyment. Join 1, 2 or all 3 and make it YOUR weekend.
1. Rocky Top from Lead Cove
2. Mt Cammerer from Low Gap
3. Ramseys Cascade
We will meet at the Cosby Campground Parking lot at 9am. We will start on the Low Gap Trail for 3 miles of climb within earshot of the Cosby Creek until we reach the namesake gap and a junction with the white blazed AT. A left turn on the AT will give us 3 more miles of a less steep climb to reach the beautiful fire tower on top of Mount Cammerer. This tower looks awesome and will yield magnificent views for us to enjoy while our lunch is enjoyed. After lunch we will retrace our steps in what should be an enjoyable downhill, fast paced return.
This hike is a difficult D5 with about 3500 feet of ascent. Recent strenuous hiking is required to join the fun. We will be averaging about 2.7 mph which puts our pace on the high end of moderate.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet at the trailhead for a 9am start. Trailhead location
