Kimberling Creek (Rt. 606) to Jenny Knob (Rt.611) 113-Mile Hike # 14

9.30 Miles, Strenuous

The trail starts by crossing Kimberling Creek on a suspension footbridge.  This is one of the longest footbridges on the A.T.  The trail then ascends steeply to the wooded summit of Brushy Mountain, before descending to Lickskillet Hollow.  It then crosses Route 608 and again ascends Brushy Mountain. It passes Jenny Knob Shelter before reaching Route 611, the southern terminus of the section of the A.T. maintained by the RATC.

Elevation Gain/(Loss):  1,600/(1,000)

We will meet at the corner of routes 311 and 419 in Salem to carpool and depart promptly at 8:30 for the trailhead.
