Tennessee - Spruce Flats Falls

This Hike is led by GWH Ambassador Victoria! I'm hoping the falls will be frozen for us this year! If there is ice, participants *MUST HAVE* some form of microspikes (or other suitable foot traction device) or they will not be allowed to participate. I will update closer to time :)
