Norris Watershed Hike

October 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will meet in front of Norris Middle School at 9:00 a.m. and carpool to the trailhead on Upper Clear Creek Road in the Norris Municipal Watershed. Our hike will start on Hi Point Trail and take us to Lakeview Trail in Norris Dam State Park. We’ll follow Lakeview, which meanders along Norris Reservoir, to Dawn’s Point, which is at the confluence of the Clinch River and Big Creek. Continuing on, we’ll get to Homestead Trail (a new trail), and take it up to Hi Point Trail, then follow that trail back to the start. Our route will take us through family farmlands that were purchased in the early ‘30s by TVA and are now a variety of forest types.

The hike will be about 3.8 miles long on single- and double-track trails with some uphill climbs. Wear sturdy boots or shoes, and bring appropriate clothing, water, and snacks if you like.
