Written by 

out hikeA nearly all-downhill hike will be held in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Tuesday, July 16, with Friends of the Smokies hike leader and guide book author Danny Bernstein.

 The guided 7.5-mile hike will start from Newfound Gap and follow the Appalachian Trail before descending on Kephart Prong, passing by lush vegetation and waterfalls. Hikers will leave their vehicles at the end of the trail and get a free lift from Rocky Top Tours shuttle service to the hike’s starting point at Newfound Gap. 

It is part of the Friends of the Smokies “Classic Hikes of the Smokies” series, held the third Tuesday of the month. It celebrates the Friends’ support for the Smokies Trails Forever program, which pays for additional trail workers for the park. Cost is $10 for Friends’ members and $35 for non-members. Registration required.
