Welcome to the website for the Cherokee Hiking Club. Our club sponsors frequent hikes and occasional backpacking trips into the areas of southeast Tennessee, northern Georgia, and southwestern North Carolina -- the former homeland of the Cherokee Indian Nation. If you are an avid hiker and live in this area, consider joining us on our hikes. You may join for $15 by filling out the application and mailing it to the address above. You may want to attend a hike or two before deciding to join, but once you start coming, you almost certainly will continue and will want to join. Below is a list of upcoming hikes. We ask that you contact the person in charge of the hike by email or phone a few days in advance to allow us to appropriately plan shuttles and to give you the most up-to-date plans for the hike. If you prefer shorter hikes on weekdays, you might check out the Sequoyah Hiking Club at www.SequoyahHikingClub.org, centered around Madisonville. Also, you might check out the Hiwassee Hiking Club, centered around Etowah at www.HiwasseeHikingClub.org.  When deciding on a hike to take, please refer to our trail difficulty rating system
