Chapter Hike Schedule

Tue. Nov 14 – Chapter Meeting. 6:00 pm. NOTE TIME CHANGE. We will meet an hour earlier since this will be our planning meeting for Jan-June hikes. Bring your calendar to schedule hikes you want to lead or ideas for hikes. Bring a finger food to share and drinks will be provided. If you want to schedule a hike and cannot attend, contact Jennifer Zahn before the meeting at or 615-943-8853.

Sat. Nov 18 - Stone Door/Big Creek Gorge/Laurel Trails approx 10 miles, Difficult.You want a nice hard but gorgeous hike? We will take the GSD trail to the Great Stone Door, decend the rocky crack to the Big Creek Gorge trail where the terrain is rough and rocky. We will take an optional in/out side trail to Ranger Falls and then ascend the big hill to the top. The plan is to take the easier Laurel Trail back but majority rule vote can get us on the Big Creek Rim trail out and back to the Door (this will add about 1.5 miles to the adventure).
Must bring plenty of water, lunch, hiking poles and good sturdy boots. A camera would also be appropriate. For info or to sign up contact Tony Jones at 615-397-4463 or
