Tellico Village: Group Hiking meets East Lakeshore Trail!

Featured Hike: East Lakeshore Trail

What’s a good local hike? How about the 2.5 miles of the Sinking Creek Branch of East Lakeshore Trail! Not a solo hiker but rather looking for a group? Tellico Village has group hikes on the 3rd Tuesday of every month!

This past month, August, Tellico Village hikers gathered at the Poplar Springs Boat Ramp parking lot at 9:00 AM to carpool to the trail head. Hikers coming from Kahite met around 9:15 AM at the Sinking Creek Trailhead, which is at the intersection of Axley Chapel Road and National Campground Road. The East Lakeshore Trails are just across the lake from the Tellico Village community and is one of the most beautiful and accessible hiking trails in East Tennessee. This trail has even been designated as National Recreation Trails by the Department of the Interior!
