Meet up at Camp Quest|
Camp Quest in the Smoky Mountains starts Sunday and RETers are welcome to come visit that morning and go on a hike and then lunch after. We have a handful coming for sure so you won't be alone. Just meet at 10:00 am this Sunday at Tremont which is in the Smokies, past Townsend.
Directions to Tremont:
Go toward downtown Knoxville on I-40 and take EXIT 386 to Alcoa Highway and the Airport (Route 129, south). Continue past the airport and get into the left lane.
Shortly thereafter, take the left split toward Townsend. Keep traveling on this road for about 18 miles without making any turns other than those necessary to navigate around large mountainous obstructions. After passing through Townsend, you will enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Once inside the park, turn right toward Cades Cove. Almost immediately cross a stonebridge over a scenic stream. Then turn left at the sign directing you to Tremont (or Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont). Go down this beautiful road for about 2 miles.
