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.


Join us on this midweek D6 on the Bartram Trail.

This hike is a long ascent with several viewpoints along the way. We will start at the Hickory Knoll Rd trailhead of the Bartram Trail and begin our ascent. At about the 2 mile mark we will hit the Pinnacle with some really nice views. After taking in the views we will continue uphill for about 2.5 miles where we will enjoy the Wolf Rock Overlook. More great views here as we continue uphill past Fishhawk Mountain and Little Fishhawk Mountain and finally Whiterock Mountain. The views here are really great and this will be our lunch spot. After lunch we will retrace our steps for a long downhill trek back to our cars.

This is a difficult D6 event, only those with recent D6 experience will be allowed on the event.

Trip Leaders are committed to keeping the group together hiking at the same pace. After registration, trip leaders will look at the recent hikes within the club for each individual. If there is not recent experience matching that of the hike, please expect an email with questions that allow the trip leaders to determine suitability to stay on the roster. This procedure is the same for every hike we lead and every member that signs up. Once we have acsertained your level of fitness if you hike with us, you may not need to be vetted for future hikes.
