Hike #5: Challenge Hike at Hampton Creek Cove State Natural Area, TN
Location: Hampton Creek Cove State Natural Area
Start Time: 9 am
Leader: Travis Bordley, our Roan Ecologist
Our challenge hike starts at Hampton Creek Cove and journeys up 1,850 feet of elevation on the Overmountain Victory Trail, through pastured farm roads and wooded footpaths to Yellow Mountain Gap on the Appalachian Trail. After a short stretch on the Appalachian Trail, we will leave trails behind and bushwack to our DeYoung property and eventually back to our cars. The total hike is about 6.5 miles with lots of elevation gain.
