Hiking and Bicycling Greeneville & Greene County Tennessee
Our hikes are rated for a person in reasonably good physical condition who has some experience hiking in the outdoors. If you are not sure of your ability to do a certain hike please contact the hike leader. The ratings are based on normal water and weather conditions. Excessive heat, rain, snow and/or wind could make the hike more difficult than planned. Be aware of the weather forecast and, as always, contact the hike leader if you have questions.
EASY-Short distance, mostly level or rolling with good footing and if there are creek crossing they will be easily rock hopped under normal water levels.
MODERATE-Longer distances, some climbing and/or creek crossings involving rock hopping. The trail may be rocky.
STRENUOUS-Long and/or steep hikes. May have very poor footing. Creek crossings may require difficult rock hopping or wading.
VERY STRENUOUS-Very long and/or steep hikes that may require rock scrambling, crawling through rhododendron and continuous wading or rock-hopping. These hikes may be offtrail or on unmaintained trails with many blowdowns and an exposed footpath. Do not attempt a very strenuous hike unless you feel you are in top condition.
