Sassafras Mtn. to Table Rock Day Hike

April 13

9 am

For our second monthly hike of the year, we will be hitting the Foothills Trail!  The hike will start on Sassafras Mountain and end at Table Rock.  Instead of the usual Table Rock to Sassafras hike, we flipped the direction to make the hike more appropriate to a large group of hikers.  The hike is 9.7 miles with great mountain-top views.
