Wednesday, September 24, 2014, Hike -- Honey Creek


This is one of the best hikes in the area and features waterfalls, rock houses, and gorge overlooks. The trail is 5.6 miles in length and fairly difficult due to rock scrambles, steep slopes, and stream crossings; a portion of the hike is in a very slippery creek bed which must be hiked with extreme caution. Although strenuous, the hike is worth the effort. Depart from Cracker Barrel at 7:30 am CT. Carpool cost is $6.

Saturday, August 23, 2014, Hike -- Russell Cave and Cathedral Caverns in Alabama

Our first visit of the day will be Russell Cave in northern Alabama. Russell Cave has been used for approximately 10,000 years. There is a nature trail that is only a mile but in August it will give you a workout. From here, we will continue to Cathedral Caverns, south of Scottsboro. This is a guided tour of about 1 1/2 hours going a little over a mile into this very impressive cavern. The tour cost is $15. The day's round trip is about a 300 miles, so we will depart from Trinity Tabernacle at 7:00 am CT. Gas cost will be $16. For information and to register, contact Bill Harris at 931-484-9152. Photos: Wayne, Pat
