January

 Jan 7, Wednesday - Sequoyah Hiking Club Series of Hikes on the East Lakeshore Trail - The East Lakeshore Trail is on the north side of Tellico Lake to the west of US 411 near Vonore. The trail is about 25 miles long with parking areas about every 4-5 miles along the trail. We will be hiking each section from east to west each Wednesday over the several upcoming weeks. Today we will be hiking the Davis Ferry Branch Section from the Glendale Trailhead, about 6 miles out and back. The trail is well groomed and easy to hike with a few minor ups and downs. We will hike rain or shine, snow or sleet. We will be meeting at the parking lot of Las Fuentes Restaurant in Madisonville (just before Walmart on US 411 north of TN 68) at 8:45AM. We will work out our shuttle and leave the parking lot promptly at 9 AM.  You do not need to sign up in advance, just show up with appropriate clothing and bring lunch and water. After the hike, we may go to a local eating establishment. This hike is open to anyone belonging to either hiking club and others as well. Dogs on leash are welcome. For more information, contact Rick Harris at 423-253-6358 or HarrisRi@aol.com. Information and maps of the trail can be found at http://www.tellicowater.org/trails.html.
