Another Smoky Mountain Jeep Club Favorite *BIG FOOT PEAK*. This ride is a scenic journey to the Citico Creek/Bald River falls area which includes a ride to the top of BIG FOOT PEAK at an elevation of 3900ft to hunt for the elusive Big Foot of Tennessee.!! The Peak is one of the highest spots accessible by Jeep. This ride is 110 miles round trip from the start point, it includes stops at Tellico Plains, BIG FOOT PEAK, and Bald River Falls. Expect this to be an all-day event!! Be sure to bring lunch, snacks, and drinks. We will meet at the Walmart parking lot on hwy 411 South, in Maryville at 9:30 am and leave out by 10 am. Our first stop will be Tellico Plains Visitors Center for a quick bathroom break and to pick up more Jeepers (around 11 am). From there we will drive up the Cherohala Skyway onto back dirt roads into the winding trails to the summit of BIG FOOT PEAK. Keep a sharp eye out for Big Foot, you never know where he will appear. Once we reach the Peak we will park, enjoy the view, eat and socialize, we will drive down to Bald River Falls and we will make a stop at the famous Citico Drive-Inn/Tellico-The Beach for ice cream! At this point, the ride ends and Jeepers can go their separate ways.
