First Baptist Church is launching a hiking group to promote community. Hikes will be planned throughout the year to offer people of all ages the opportunity to explore the trails in the Smoky Mountains. We hope you will join us for one of our three planned hikes this summer. The dates are June 16, July 20 and August 5.
June 16 - Cucumber Gap Trail/Little River Trail
Our first hike will be on Saturday, June 16 on the Cucumber Gap Loop and Little River Trail. Round trip, this hike should be around 5+ miles and with only a total elevation gain of 830 feet, this hike is rated as moderate. We will depart from the church parking at 8:30 AM and arrive at the Little River Trailhead (near Elkmont) around 10:00 AM. This is a family friendly hike. All who participate should wear comfortable clothes for hiking, bring plenty of water and a packed lunch. We also ask all who would like to participate in the hike to please register so that we may prepare accordingly.
