River-to-River hike is May 1The River-to-River Trail Society will hold its eighth and final scheduled hike of the spring 2021 season on Saturday, May 1, on Shawnee National Forest Trail 146 in Gallatin County. The hike is free and open to the public. Hikers should meet at 10 a.m. at the parking area atop High Knob, north of Karbers Ridge. The access road to High Knob runs through a busy horse camp, so hikers are requested to drive slowly and carefully as they drive through the camp. This will be a hike of moderate difficulty, about 5 miles in length, intended for people in good health who have done some walking. Hikers should bring their own water and a snack; hiking sticks and boots or sturdy shoes are strongly recommended; no dogs, please. Due to COVID-19, participants must have a mask covering the nose, mouth and chin, which is not needed while hiking but required when bunching up or when passing on the trail. For information or directions, call 618-841-4838.
