    The Len Foote Hike Inn dates have been confirmed - they are Saturday-Sunday, September 29-30, 2018. 

    Hello Hikers, one thing I don't think I have mentioned??? Tom Dubose & I knew ( we both made the arraignments for the rooms). Len Foote requires a $10 per room tip for the staff.  If you are sharing a room that will only be $5 each.  Since so far it is only our group I think a $10 for single and $5 each for roommates is not to much to ask.  You will be treated to two of the best meals ever... tours of the worm sewer system, friendly and helpful staff.  Bathrooms are kept very clean and so are the grounds.  The "tip" is split between everyone.  

    WE NOW HAVE AN OPENING FOR TWO TO SHARE A ROOM

    ***At this time we still have a room available, however if not filled  by CSC members we will be meeting some new friends.  

    Contact Barb no later than Monday September 17th!!!! 423-902-6095

    If you like to hike and have never done this before, you will love this fantastic moderate hike.  The trail is well maintained without a lot of rocks or roots on the trail.  It is uphill most of the five miles.  You will need to carry your clothes and toiletries for the evening and the next morning.  When you reach the Inn, you will fall in love with this place and will want to go back again.  Awaiting you will be a delicious home-cooked dinner (family style) and a hearty breakfast.  Alcohol can be packed in.  For more info, see their website @ Hike-Inn.com.  Be aware that what you carry in you must also carry out.

    The cost with 2 people per room is $217.35 (or $108.68 per person).  For one person in the room the cost is $151.80.  If you book a single room and want to change to a double (add a roommate), you can call the Inn and pay the difference. There is also a $10 per room tip that must be paid while you are at the Inn.  Cancellation is up to 7 days out with a $10 per room cancellation fee.

    The Virginia Creeper Trail is possibly the easiest, prettiest mountain bike ride you will ever encounter. The VA Creeper Trail, which is actually the "retired" railway corridor of the Virginia-Carolina Railroad, has become one of the most popular bicycling trail destinations in the eastern United States.

    The Va Creeper Trail stretches 34 miles from Abingdon, Virginia down thru the lovely town of Damascus, Va (known as the Heart of the Va Creeper) along the Whitetop Laurel River and up to its highest point Whitetop Station near the NC State Line at Whitetop, Virginia. The Va Creeper Trail is open year round to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

    This former rail bed passes through the Mount Rogers National Recreation area and the highland country of Southwestern Virginia. The Virginia Creeper Trail is rich in beauty and regional history. This is an easy biking adventure that you and your friends and family will talk about for a long time.  

    Join us on this October 19-21, 2018 ride.  At this time we have 12 CSC riding the trail.

    Contact Barb Wise for information no lodging and booking your shuttle/bike rental (if necessary) to the top of  White Top Mountain
