A Little Church and Great Big Elk

What: The Little Cataloochee Church is just a tiny white cabin with a steeple, but it’s been worth a visit since 1889. The Friends of the Smokies will offer a moderately difficult, 6.5-mile hike to the church, and if the weather is good and time allows, hikers can watch an elk herd travel through the Cataloochee Valley. No need to drive out there all alone: A group will depart from Asheville in the morning. Be sure to pack food, water and hiking clothes, as the trip will take all day.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 4.
Where: The guided tour will depart from Interstate 40, exit 24, at 9 a.m. Exact location will be specified upon registration.
Cost: $25 donation includes membership to Friends of the Smokies.
Registration: Space is limited. For more information, email grtsmoky@bellsouth.net or call 452-0720.
