Written by 

out cataloocheeA guided hike in the Cataloochee Valley area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will be held Thursday, Oct. 18.

The hike is part of the Friends of the Smokies “Classic Hikes of the Smokies” series, which features a different hike each month. Outdoors author and hiking expert Danny Bernstein, who wrote Hiking North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, will lead this 9-mile hike on the Caldwell Fork loop trail.

The hike is moderate in difficulty and has a total elevation gain of 1,650 feet. It will pass through old home-sites, graves, and end with the historic Steve Woody House. The hike also goes past holding pens where the elk were acclimated to the Park while being re-introduced to the area.

A donation of $35 to go to the Friends’ Smokies Trails Forever program is requested and includes a complimentary membership to Friends of the Smokies. Current Friends of the Smokies members hike for $10. Hikers who bring a friend hike for free.
