Weekend To Do List, January 11-13, 2019

It's the second weekend in January, but it's been looking and feeling like March or April! The temperatures dip back down to more Wintery Weather norms this weekend, but don't let that scare you. There's plenty to do when you get out and about. Check out our list! 

Do: Y-Hikes: House Mountain

When: Saturday, January 12th, 9:30am-12:30pm
Where: YMCA - Lindsay Young, Downtown / 605 W Clinch Ave. Knoxville 

The YMCA is starting off their 2019 Y-Hikes with House Mountain. They'll be gathering at the Downtown YMCA at 9:30am, and leave at 10am, carpooling to the trailhead site, which is about 22 minutes away.

They will be taking the 3.7 mile loop trail that includes great views! You should be back in time to all get lunch downtown together post-hike (optional).

Dress warm! The difficulty rating of this hike is 6/10 due to rapid elevation gains and the trails can wind back and forth among the trees and rocks.
