This is great for day-hikers with only a little experience This track gives you 5.9 miles of the Appalachian trail, followed by a .6-mile walk down a dirt road to the lake from Jarrard Gap.  Trail runners are welcome!  Some have done this hike in 5 hours, including a short lunch break. The route involves about 2000' of vertical ascent/descent.  We will allow for 8 hours to ease the pace and allow for time at the lake.  Of course everyone is welcome to hike at their own pace!   
     On the way back we can stop at the top of Big Cedar Mountain for a break, after a long ascent.  From here it is only 1.2 miles back to our cars at Woody Gap.

Hiking and swimming accouterments!
