Leader: Andy Steffan, 919-928-4738
Rating: Moderate 3.6-mile loop hike, 1000’ up and down elevation change
Coon Den Falls is located near Hampton, TN. This 50’ falls trail offers some vistas along the way as you reach the highest elevation in the middle of the hike. The falls are best after a good rainfall, so let’s hope we get some solid rain beforehand, unlike what we’ve experienced recently. The trail follows the A.T. for about 1.7 miles, then a ~1 mile stint on Coon Den Falls Trail. To return, it’s ~1 mile on the Coon Den Falls Trail and road-side back to the parking lot. Sturdy footwear is recommended.
Let’s leave Colonial Heights (now Ingles parking area) at 10 am for a roughly hour drive towards Hampton. Please let the hike leader know of your interest in carpooling and potential pick-up points, if on the way. Otherwise, meet at the Dennis Cove Road, Falls/A.T. parking area, at 11 am. Pack a lunch/snack and plenty of water. Plan to hike until mid-afternoon. For further information or notification of interest, please call/text/email the lead hiker.
