Here are some pictures of our most recent hikes.
Abrams Falls: 5 miles
Abrams Falls is a challenging trail for me. Lots of roots and rocks and, well, we also had biked the 11 mile loop at Cades Cove that morning. But getting in the creek at the falls made it all worth it! Lovely and cold on a hot day!
Meigs Creek: 7 milesRandy and I added 7 miles with the Meigs Creek Trail last week. I really enjoyed this trail. We got there early on a Saturday morning and only passed a few people on our way back down.
Curry Mountain: 6.6 milesMy friend Cathy and I hiked the Curry Mountain Trail for another 6.6 miles on September 1. It was H-O-T!! It started pouring on the way back down, though, so we did get a little cooled off! We didn't pass even one single hiker that day.
Midnight Hole and Mouse Creek Falls: 4 milesIn August, a big group of us did the hike to Midnight Hole and Mouse Creek Falls. We spent a lot of time at the swimming hole—as did about 50 other people that particular day! That was just a short 4 miles added to my list— but everything counts!
Little River: 4.8 milesAlso in August, a group of us did the Little River Trail again for 4.8 more miles.
Those were my August and September (so far) hikes for the Hike100. I'm really loving this Smokies Centennial Challenge and sometimes, even after 17 years, still can't believe I live by this incredible national park!
