Hike leader: Jonathan Shumaker 417-389-6987

Difficulty: Hard 8-10 mile hike

We will be hiking from Carvers Gap to the Overmountain Shelter.  I have never made the hike to the Overmountain shelter and am looking forward to the trip in the cold weather.  I will be getting out on the trail early and hope to be back to the car around lunch time.   I will be leaving Kingsport around 6:30 am and will be getting to the trailhead around 8 am.  Temperatures look to be well below freezing for the hike so dress accordingly.  Bring snacks, or even a light lunch and water.
