Hike to explore remote reaches of the Smokies
A hike through the remote Twentymile area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will give a chance to cool off from summer heat on Friday, July 24.
Marti Smith of the Great Smoky Mountains Association, which is organizing the hike, will share her knowledge of the park’s flora and fauna as the group follows a gradual incline along an old railroad bed on the far end of Lake Fontana. The Twentymile Loop Trail also includes some creek crossings that require wading.
Snorkel on the trail
A hike and snorkeling trip near Panthertown Valley will offer a chance to cool off from summer heat July 25.
Jackson County Parks and Recreation will lead a group on a 4- to 6-mile hike through the mountains and offer the chance to snorkel among the fish in cool, slow-moving water.
