Hike Report: Stone Door Big Creek Rim 2-26-11

We had a fantastic hike today (Saturday Feb. 26) at Savage Gulf State Natural Area. We had a LUCKY 13 number of hikers from various chapters. 8 from the host chapter Murfreesboro, 3 from Soddy-Daisy, and 1 each from Nashville, Highland Rim and Knoxville.

The weather was absolutely beautiful and we had a surprise at Laurel Falls....It was flowing heavily which is very unusual. There is seldom much water there at all. The views from Stone Door were fantastic and the overlooks had wonderful visibility.

We did some FINE DINING at Alum Gap Campsite and then followed the Laurel Trail back out to the Ranger Station.
