ELECTRONICS REMINDER 📱🕹️
One of the great benefits of heading out on any of our trips is that we’re able to unplug from our digital world for a few days. Electronics are allowed while traveling to our destinations, but we have a longstanding rule that
Scouts are not allowed to use electronics while on our trips (i.e. if brought they’ll be left in vehicles and not used during the trip).

ITINERARY

Little Cove campground is a new campground that opened last year in South Cumberland State Park, in between the Fiery Gizzard and Foster Falls. After checking out the falls, we’ll hike about 5 miles in from Foster Falls with gentle elevation changes along the way and scenic overlooks of the gulf/gorge along the way. Depending what time we get into camp we could tag an additional spur up to Raven Point for an amazing overlook of the whole area.
