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

We will be hiking from the AT 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 just under 3 miles to the Dam and we will come back the same route along the AT 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 Dunking Donuts at the Shell gas station on 19E (4953 US-19E, Hampton, TN) at 9 AM. If there is interest in carpooling from Kingsport, Johnson City, or anywhere else, let the hike leader know and hopefully it can be coordinated. The hike should be done around noon, so bring snacks/light lunch to enjoy along the trail. For further information and to let us know of your interest, please call/text the hike leader.
