Brief Description: Join us for a easy 3.6 mile loop hike around Indian Boundary Lake. The lake is picturesque and the view of Flats Mountain is very scenic. The trail is almost flat with very little elevation change. We will share the trail with bikes which have the right of way. This is a joint hike of the Cherokee and Hiwassee Hiking Clubs.Directions to Trail Head: Meet at Comcast in Athens ready to leave at 1:30. Cherokee hikers may meet us in Athens or at Hardees in Tellico Plains at 2:15. As you enter Indian Boundary, stay on the road to the left, pass the primitive camping area, bear right until you reach the boat ramp parking area. Rest rooms are available in the primitive camping area. The parking lot is a non-fee area.Leaders: Effaleda & Bob Lee 423-568-2501, cell 423-507-5582Post Trip Report: Three joint members of the Hiwassee and Cherokee Hiking Clubs and four guests consisting of a mother and her three children enjoyed a pleasant walk around the lake on a very warm day. The two youngest children cooled off at the end of the trip by getting in the water. No bicyclists and very few hikers were met on the trail. Mountain laurel along the trail was in full bloom. We heard thunder near the end of the hike and ran into a hard rain on the way home. It was great having the family hike with us and hope to see them on future hikes. Members present were Effaleda and Bob Lee and Jane Bohannon. The guests were from Sweetwater.
