Hiking Group Outing Planned For April 11

Hiking Club Photo 2015April is the traditional starting month for those hearty souls from around the world who are attempting to hike the entire Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt Katahdin, Maine. On Saturday, April 11 the St Matt’s hiking group will walk along the trail handing out snacks to these “thru hikers.” Known as “trail magic” our little gifts serve to lift the spirits of these folks and are always much appreciated. While the “AT” can be fairly steep in spots, we will take our time and not go too far.

We will gather at the church parking lot at 7:30 a.m. and form a little caravan. We will then drive about 1-1/2 hours to Tesnatee Gap, hike a bit, break to eat a bag lunch, hike back to the cars and then drive home, arriving at the church around by 5pm.

This will be a fun day for you and your family in a beautiful part of North Georgia and can be considered a quiet form of evangelism – “feeding the hungry” so please consider joining us. Just let Ted Sokal know if you have any questions and/or would like to join the group.

The group typically schedules one hike per month. For more information, contact Ted Sokal or Greg Andrews.
