Great Smoky Mountains Association invites its members and those considering an enriched national park experience to “Branch Out” and go hiking with a naturalist in March.
“Big Creek Hike” with Liz Domingue of Just Get Outdoors is set for Saturday, March 21, on the North Carolina side of the park, just north of Cataloochee Valley. Participants will enjoy learning about nature on this four-mile, round-trip hike to Mouse Creek Falls and Midnight Hole. Since the weather may still be cold in the Smokies, participants are asked to prepare with layers and appropriate outerwear. The hike is limited to 20 participants.
Domingue is a professional naturalist, educator, nature photographer, writer and guide with extensive experience hiking, backpacking, photographing and studying the natural world. Her interest in and study of natural history has been her lifelong pursuit and passion. As the originator and operator of Just Get Outdoors, she leads guided interpretive hikes and Naturalist Adventure Tours regionally and throughout the U.S.
