About The Event

Beautiful location to go backpacking fairly close to Chattanooga. EASY, SHORT, AND very nice hiking! Really nice trails for Sabbath afternoon hiking. Since it is near the lake it has a good water source. There is a clearing that tents can be set up in and a wooded section right beside it for those hammocking. 

We will backpack in on Friday (about 1-1.5 miles), set up camp for the weekend, have church and Sabbath School, have a nice hike after lunch, vespers around a bonfire in the evening, and then pack out Sunday morning. Sound nice? 

If you have never been backpacking before or want to learn how to do it better this is a great opportunity! We will have a backpacking class prior to leaving to give tips and tricks on how to do this. 

We will meet at the large parking lot just past the Ocoee Whitewater Center.
