Itinerary:

Moved to February - looks like January got rained out :(

We will meet at the visitor center.  We will complete the Homestead Trail, Sweet Gum Trail, and Iron Hill Trail (along with the campground connector trail).  We will stop along the way to devour lunch.

We will be hiking at a moderate pace to fast pace, averaging between 2.5 to 3.0 mph.

For folks wanting to do a longer hike, this is a good challenge for you.
