Soddy Gorge TTA - Don

Had a small group today but it did not diminish the fun of hiking on Cumberland Trail. We hiked the southern end of Soddy Gorge segment which stretches between Mowbray Pike and Hotwater Road. This section of trail is in need of some chain saw maintenance. There are many trees on the trail, mostly in the Clemmons Point area.

Daddy's Creek/ Crab Orchard Mt. Segment - Cumberland Trail

Lora and I did the 7.7 mile Daddy's Creek section of the Crab Orchard Mountain Segment of the Cumberland trail. We left one car at the South end trailhead, just past and hidden beyond the power lines on Hebbertsburg road. We drove by the Yellow Gate trailhead and started at the North end on Keyes road. There is no street sign here, but there is a very large sign advertising the Keyes Harrison Wildlife Management Area. This trailhead is not noticeable to the naked eye either.

This trail goes through some beautiful areas with rock formations and creeks. There is a campsite with three numbered sites along side of Daddy's Creek. There is also an overlook off the trail.
