AT preparation season has officially begun! We will have our first official practice hike this Saturday. All AT Pilgrims are required to attend. You can still join us for a hike, even if you aren't going on the AT. We welcome anyone from out church family who is interested in getting outdoors. Below are the specifics. Look forward to seeing everyone!
Where: Piedmont Trail
When: 8 a.m. on 8/21

This hike could take up to two hours depending on how heavy your pack is and how much we visit and stop for breaks. This trail is fairly easy, 2.5 miles out and back, for a total of 5 or so miles. There are a few hills, but not big ones. This is a good get your feet wet practice hike. Please confirm you are coming by emailing Caroline Tisdale at Also, feel free to reach out with questions. The trail is located past the marina on Lake Brandt Rd. It is on the left side of the road, just past the dam. There is a gravel parking lot where we will meet.
