Lower Sycamore Creek Dayhike
Saturday, August 1, 2009
Brief Description: The hike is 2 miles in and 2 miles out along the beautiful Sycamore Creek on an old logging road/railroad bed. The trail is relatively level and tends to have a couple of wet spots. Hiking sticks are recommended if there has been recent rain causing slippery roots and slippery rocks. Bring plenty of water and trail food. We will have a late lunch at the Tellico Bakery. This is a joint hike with the Hiwassee Hiking Club.
