Black Mountain - Sara
We had 6 hikers on the Good Friday hike at Black Mountain in Crossville. We started our hike at the southern terminus trailhead on Highway 68 and hiked to the top. At the top we hiked the loop trail with views of Grassy Cove and Crab Orchard. We saw lots of climbers at the top and a few wildflowers along the trail. The trail is well marked but it was a hot day for hiking. We were able to get some cool water from the stone springhouse near the trailhead kiosk. This springhouse was used by the people living in the area years ago as a source of water and to keep food from spoiling.
Hikers were Jean Breuer, Ann Jacobs, Doug King, Sara Pollard, Jan Safavi and Jennifer Zahn.
