    Trip Report from the Pocket Wilderness near Soddy Daisy

    Here's a trip my brother (Billy the Goat) and I did in May of this year. Sorry about the quality, it's a cheep crappy camera that I'm not afraid to take backpacking with me.

    Type in youtube, surrounded by brackets, then the part of the URL to the video behind the "=", in this case, 762D4_dOgUQ, then close it up with /youtube, surrounded by brackets. All on one line with no spaces. I'm not a computer expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express one night.

    Looks like a great place. I'm adding it to my list.
    How far did you hike, where did you start/end?
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    This is one of my favorite hikes and places to camp and swim. The hike in is short at only five miles, but has many different changes that keeps it interesting and challenging. There's big cliff sides, stream crossing, boy scout ladders that you have to climb. I think they called them boy scout ladders because they're only big enough for a boy scout to fit through. There's an extreme climb down which leads to one of the best swimming holes I've ever seen on a river. Deep,clear and with a swing rope.( It wasn't in the video.)
    In short, it's five miles that feels like ten and it's feels like a big boy's jungle gym. Lot's of places to hang hammocks!

    Here's the link: http://www.cumberlandtrail.org/nchic.html

    Be careful, this trail head is close to the city of Soddy Daisey and Chattanooga and locals do break windows. The last time we went we used a shuttle system and didn't leave our vehicles there.
