Roan Mountain

Roan Mountain Cabin Trip – Have you always wanted to hike on the Appalachian Trail?  Well now is your chance.  Our day hikes will take us through Carvers Gap along the AT running through the wide-open spaces, waving grass of the Roan Mountain Balds along the Tennessee/North Carolina border.  On our mountain trail we will hike through the colorful azaleas and rhododendrons. If time permits, we can visit the site of the historic Cloudland Hotel (built in 1880’s) near Roan High Bluff.  From a visitor to the hotel, we will “come up out of the sultry plains to the land of the sky - magnificent views above the clouds where the rivers are born.”


On the way to our cabin, we will stop by the oldest town in Tennessee, Jonesborough.  There are several antique shops and a couple of tea rooms where we will enjoy lunch. 

This trip is rated easy to moderate.  Bring your camera because the entire trip will be full of photo opportunities.

A detail schedule will be sent to registrants.  For questions call 615-443-3371 or email
