Description

FGH Tennessee! Tamera is hosting this lovely hike in the Great Smoky Mountains.

This hike has some interesting history: The Walker sisters cabin & farm was famous for the 5 sisters who lived there until the last sister died in 1964. https://www.nps.gov/grsm/learn/historyculture/walker-sisters.htm

Fat Girls Hiking's body positive group hikes are open to ALL genders, ALL sizes, ALL skill levels. We will go at a pace that feels good for everyone. No one is too slow to hike with us! We love to share our lived experiences with one another while hiking and hope to create a space where ALL feel welcome! We ask that anyone who joins our group events refrain from diet talk, body shaming or weight loss talk.


The Hike: 3.2 miles out & back. This hike will be great for anyone who has not done a lot of hiking before. The trail goes through the woods to Little Greenbrier School House & then onto the Walker Sisters cabin. This hike is mostly easy with a couple of moderate sections. There is very little elevation gain on this trail.



Getting There: We will meet at 10 am at the trailhead located at Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area. The trail begins from Metcalf bottoms picnic area, located roughly halfway between sugar lands visitor center and the Townsend Y on Little River Road. There are restrooms located at the picnic area at the trailhead.
