Driving Directions 

November Black Rock Mountain Hike

The Tennessee Rock Trail, the one we will hike, winds its way through some of the highest and most lush forests. It is the park's most popular hiking trail. The trail offers a perfect opportunity to get better acquainted with the area's rich woodlands and vistas, that on clear days span over 80 miles into the neighboring states of both North and South Carolina, as well as Tennessee, including views of Georgia's Brasstown Bald and Clingman's Dome in Tennessee.

We will also discover an Appalachian boulderfield, an actual remnant of the great ice age which ended more than 10,000 years ago. And, we will also walk a quarter-mile along the Blue Ridge Mountain backbone, following the Eastern Continental Divide. This great ridge separates rainfall flowing eastward toward the Savannah River and the Atlantic Ocean from rainfall trending westward toward the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico...wow!  Remember learning about the 'Continental Divide' in school...we will actually be walking alongside and crossing it!
