The inaugural hike of Girls Outside takes place from 1 – 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, at the South Loop in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness. This hike is for girls in grades 4-6. On this approximately 4-mile hike, we will begin at Mead’s Quarry, which is part of Ijams Nature Center, and wander past gated caves and uniquely carved marble shelves. The trails also features a mix of hardwood forests, old fields, switchbacks, and easy hills to climb. Visit www.girlsoutside.org for more info and to register.
