The Ijams Hiking Club took to the high ground.
And, oh what a view!
We closed out the month of May with a perfect Saturday morning for a hike, albeit a bit warm by the time we finished.
This time we explored a portion of the "Knoxville Urban Wilderness: Battlefield Loop" south of the river and UT. We went to High Ground Park and Ft. Higley, then on to River Bluff and the best view of the city.
It's in-your-face overwhelming!
Our next hike is this Saturday, June 14, 9 a.m. We'll meet at the Visitor Center and carpool to our starting point, exploring a new section of the South Loop. To register call, (865) 577-4717, ext. 110.
