Jacks River Trail Dayhike
Wednesday, September 2, 2009


Brief Description:   The trail leaves from Daly Gap at the eastern edge of Cohutta Wilderness. This is a cool shady hike, great for hot summer days.  The first mile and a half is easy walking through a quiet forest of large hemlocks.  However, the 2 crossings may be almost knee deep and will be slippery.  I suggest bringing walking sticks, a change of shoes, and a plastic bag for your valuables. 

        Leader Karen Young, leader.  423-339-1156.

        Length: 5 miles

        Difficulty: Moderate due to numerous river crossings
