A guided hike on the three-and-a-half mile round-trip Thomas Divide Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will be held July 7.
Great Smoky Mountains Association is sponsoring the hike, which will be led by naturalist Liz Domingue. Thomas Divide Trail has moderate uphill and downhill grades. There is a forest of Eastern hemlock, yellow birch, American beech and several species of maple. Many fallen chestnut logs can be seen on the forest floor.
Wear appropriate hiking gear. Bring rain gear and bottled water, along with a snack or lunch. A hiking stick is recommended.
There is a $5 fee for GSMA members, and a $10 charge for non-members.
