This Spring hike will begin at the Devil's Breakfast Table trailhead located within the Catoosa WMA and one of the yet to be completed newest section of the Cumberland Trail. The hike will follow the road across a wooden bridge, then enter the wood after a short distance. The trail leads across two small easily-crossed streams and then continues up, between bluffs, over approximately 380 rock steps/pavers to reach the top. We may pause to admire the trail builder's excellent workmanship. Once on top, the hike is relatively easy and offers three overlooks of the Daddy's Creek. Trial construction stops after about 4 miles hence the hike is approximately 8 miles RT, perhaps more if the trail has been extended.

Meet at Golds Gym in Oak Ridge at 7:30 am OR at trailhead parking area at 9:00 am. Rated moderate mainly due to the short climb on the rock steps.
