Nothing gets the blood flowing after a work day like a nice brisk hike so come join us for your mid week fitness hike.  We will meet outside the visitor center and head straight up and over Big KM, Little KM, and Pigeon Hill to Burnt Hickory Rd.  After covering the three peaks we will turn back and do it again. 

Our target pace will be 3mph with no planned breaks so bring water that you can drink on the go.  My goal is to cover the ~6 miles with ~1600 ft of elevation gain and be back to the parking lot by 8:00pm.

This is not a beginner's hike.   If you are concerned that you may not be able to keep up there are other hikes that may be more appropriate for you. 

If the main parking lot is full there is an overflow lot on Old Hwy 41 appx 1/4 mile away.  Allow extra time to park in the overflow if needed. There is a $5 parking fee required if you don't have an annual pass.  The fee can be paid ahead of time at or at the visitor center. 

NOTE:  The itenerary for this hike is subject to change up to and including during the hike.  This means that we may decide to alter the course slightly, but nothing too drastic.

Required Items to Bring:

Hiking shoes or trail runners
Water or electrolyte drink
