Hike - Ace Gap - Fri., July 8, 2016

FRIDAY, JULY 8, 2016
Depart at 8:00 a.m. from Chota Center

The trailhead for this in and out hike is on the Great Smoky Mountain National Park boundary where Rich Mountain Road meets Old Cades Cove Road, leading to Townsend.  The Ace Gap Trail is peaceful, not heavily used, and relatively level.  There are several climbs, but they are not very long.  The cumulative round trip elevation gain is near 2100 feet.  The hike will be a good physical workout.
