    The hike to this hang is about 1.2 miles uphill. There are no bathrooms. There is a stream where you can get water to filter or treat. If you don't have a hammock yet, feel free to bring your tent. You will be able to check all kinds of hammocks and related accessories. Basically, put yourself on the sign up sheet in this thread and come on up and introduce yourself. We are a friendly bunch.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    Re: WNC - The 4th Annual John Rock Hang 7/12-7/14

    Still no certain answer on whether I can make it but still trying and hoping. It would be great to see everyone again and meet some new folks too. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    I don't have a GPS so coordinates won't do me any good...oh wait I think mapquest allows them when getting directions.

    Chances are slim that I would make it but you never know

    Yes. It shares the same parking lot.

    Ewker,

    Here is a Google Map from Old Hickory to the Fish Hatchery.

    Hope you can make it.
