Take-a-Hike with the Sierra Club By Wendy Smith

T

here’s no better way to enjoy nature’s bounty than by hitting one of the numerous trails that meander through East Tennessee’s abundant wilderness areas. But setting out into the woods can be intimidating for a beginning hiker. That’s why Knoxville’s Harvey Broome Group of the Sierra Club developed the Take-aHike program. Take-a-Hike is for new hikers or those who want to return to the sport but need to develop stamina. It’s a year-long series of hikes that starts with a short distance – about three miles – then builds in distance and difďŹ culty as the year progresses. The hikes are guaranteed to increase knowledge as well as ďŹ tness levels because they’re led by Sierra Club veterans like Mac Post. “He can tell you everything

you need to know about wildflowers and trees,� says Harvey Broome Group Chair Robin Hill. “They’re not just hikes – they’re learning experiences. It’s sort of like a walking classroom, you might say.� Upcoming outings, including Take-a-Hike trips, will be the topic of the next Harvey Broome Group program meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (TVUUC). In addition to day hikes, the group offers paddling trips, cleanup expeditions, and overnight backpacking trips, including an annual gourmet backpacking trip in the fall that challenges participants to cook extravagant backcountry meals. Hill calls the group’s outdoor activities the “dessert� that follows Mac Post, Charlie Ottenfeld, Warren Ottenfeld, Paige Ottenfeld, Conrad Ottenfeld, Lisa Rhind, Line Pouchard, Shathe hard work of conservation, ron Barnett, and Nancy Niezic relax on Gregory Bald in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park during a Sierra which is more like eating eggplant Club expedition.
