Wildflower Walk in the Cherokee National Forest
April 6 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Experience nature’s boundless beauty and picturesque paint strokes on a wildflower walk in the Cherokee National Forest with Outdoor Chattanooga and Botanist/Ecologist Mark Pistrang. Enjoy a family-friendly trek on relatively flat terrain to view and learn more about the wonderful wildflowers that dot the forested landscape. Easy for beginner hikers and little legs, the leisurely paced hike will lend time for photography, note taking and a short break to enjoy your own packed lunch/snack in the forest. Participants should come prepared to spend a few hours outdoors and mindful that the closest facilities (restrooms, small store, restaurant) are located in the nearby community of Reliance, TN.
Online registration required in advance as the hike has a maximum limit of 15 to reduce overcrowding on the trail. Carpooling is encouraged due to limited parking at the trailhead, which is approximately 70 minutes from Chattanooga, 30 minutes from Cleveland. Location details will be disclosed with registration.
Cost: FREE with registration
