Sunrise Hike on Cherokee Mountain

Saturday, July 25, 2020, 5:00 AM

As the stars fade and the blackness of night softens to silver, you await a truly breath-taking  experience! The eastern sky is painted in gentle hues of purple and pink, slowly giving way to orange and then glowing gold as color stretches in every direction.  Earth’s star climbs over the horizon and you bask in this magnificent gift of light!
Listen for the stirrings of the birds that call Cherokee Mountain their home.  Perhaps you will witness the first flight of the day.  Remember the creatures of the night that are settling in for their rest. The truly fortunate will glimpse a mountain lion or hear the growls of a territorial dispute. Revel in the promise of this new day.

Join us for a hike up Cherokee Mountain to view the rising of the sun.  This is considered a moderate hike—participants should be physically fit and over 10 years in age.  We will begin in the upper parking lot and the hike will last about 45 minutes each way.  We will arrive atop Cherokee Mountain a bit before sunrise and return in full light.   Long pants and good hiking shoes are recommended, as well as a walking stick and a headlamp for night hiking.   Please be aware that flipflops and sandals are not allowed.
