Thank you for your understanding as we work through this public health challenge together.
Join Outdoor Chattanooga’s experienced guide staff for a guided hike on the scenic Cumberland Trail. This is one of nine different short section hikes (4-6 miles each) on the Cumberland Trail being offered as part of our Cumberland Trail Hiking Series. The series begins on January 12 and concludes December 6, 2020, with most hikes being offered on Sunday mornings with the exception of one Saturday that falls on National Trails Day (June 6). (See full schedule below)
The Cumberland Trail is known for its beauty, mountain streams, and remote setting. The single-track trail is rated as moderately strenuous with significant elevation changes where hikers may need to high step over rocks, deadfall, and other obstacles. New hikers should expect this route to be challenging but certainly attainable. Guides and a shuttle will be provided for the one way trek so you can enjoy the scenic views and sounds of nature without the worry of getting lost.
Cost: FREE. Registration is required in advance as space is limited in the shuttle vehicle. All details about the section hikes are given to participants upon registration via email. The CT is a remote trail over rugged terrain. We ask participants have some hiking experience and be in good physical shape to hike 4-6 miles continuously on sections rated as moderately strenuous. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a participating parent or responsible adult.
For more information and to get registered for this hike call (423) 643-6888. Please note that we cannot take reservations for the entire series at one time. These trips are very popular so we will take reservations one month in advance. Trips are often waitlisted.
