October Hike at Black Rock Mountain State Park 

Join us for a refreshing Tri-state 2.2 mile nature hike through the beautiful wild-flower filled forest of the Tennessee Rock Trail at Black Rock Mountain State Park. We will stop at the overlook so you can enjoy the stunning mountain views.

The Tennessee Rock Trail 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 discover an Appalachian boulder field, an actual remnant of the great ice age which ended more than 10,000 years ago. 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!  Remember learning about the 'Continental Divide' in school...we will actually be walking alongside and crossing it!

Bring plenty of water, a light healthy lunch, a smile and a friendly disposition, and you are guaranteed to have a Wonderful Outing in the Wilderness... WOW! As always, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots (please, no new shoes or will be sorry...break them in first!), and of course comfortable layered, clothing.   
Don't forget the Leave No Trace principles to which we adhere... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of taking your memories of the adventure, your new friendships, and of course, any photos you may take.
Remember... we carpool and each rider is asked to donate $5 - $10 toward gas.
