Who We Are:

If you enjoy walking in the woods and fields of East Tennessee, come to one of our hikes. That is all it takes to join our club!

We are a fun loving group of your neighbors, and you probably already know several of us. Discover the Smokies and other areas in East Tennessee and Western North Carolina.

 Our hikes are generally 6-12 miles. They are moderate to a little more strenuous in difficulty and can have hills. All of them feature good views, friendly conversation, and a fun way to get a little exercise. If you are a novice hiker, be sure to read our hike descriptions to assure yourself that the hike fits your ability level.

 We usually plan hikes for the second Friday and fourth Wednesday of each month (only one hike in December). Hike dates and descriptions are on the TellicoLife Calendar.

 For more information about us or a specific hike, Contact Us through Tellico Life or you can contact one of the club leaders
