Rating: Medium 6-mile round-trip hike, fairly flat

We will be hiking from the A.T. crossing of US321/HW67 just east of Hampton, TN. The trail follows the southside of Watauga Lake all the way to the dam. It is around 3 miles to the dam and we will come back the same route along the A.T. for a total of 6 miles. There are great views of the lake and mountains in the area. We will plan on meeting at the trailhead at 9 AM.  The hike should be done around noon, so bring snacks/light lunch to enjoy when we get back to the cars. To let us know of your interest, or if you have questions please call/text the hike leader.
