Tour the wildflowers with Smokies hike

A flowered hike along the Hyatt Ridge Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will offer an excuse to get outside Tuesday, May 10, as part of Friends of the Smokies’ Classic Hikes series. 

Accessed through the Oconaluftee entrance to the park, the remote 9.5-mile roundtrip is rated as moderate in difficulty with a 2,000-foot total elevation gain. Hiking guide author Danny Bernstein will lead the excursion. 

$20 for members; $35 for non-members, with one-year membership included. Donations benefit trail rehabilitation through the Smokies Trails Forever program.
