Hiking Club Makes Trail Magic
On Camp Creek Bald

For the third consecutive year, members of the Greeneville Hiking Club performed "Trail Magic" at Jones Meadow on the summit of Camp Creek Bald aka Viking Mountain.

Trail Magic is the act of furnishing hot meals and beverages for the legions of thruhikers on the Appalachian Trail. Each spring, approximately 10,000 hikers attempt the long distance trek of more than 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine.

The club set up an outdoor kitchen under several large tents on Friday morning, May 3, and served breakfast, lunch and dinner until Sunday, May 5. Hamburgers and hot dogs along with a variety of vegetables, snacks, homemade cookies and breads were served for lunch and dinner. Breakfast consisted of bacon, eggs, pancakes and homemade bread.

According to the log book that was kept, more than 100 hikers were served meals. Since some of the hikers remained for a second meal, more than 135 total meals were served.

The thruhikers represented many states from every part of the U.S.A. plus several foreign countries.

More than 50 meals were served to the workers. Six club members camped on the mountain both nights, and 35 members participated in some way.

A photo slideshow of the event can be viewed on the club website
