Trails Committee hosting a holiday hike on High Gap

By Greg Dunlap

HighGapThe Big Canoe Trails Committee invites anyone and everyone in the Big Canoe community--owners, visitors, guests, employees, and others—to hike on the newly opened High Gap Trail in Wildcat beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday May 25.

High Gap Park is the newest park in Big Canoe, opened in the spring of 2019.  The park consists of a series of trails meandering in a 36 acre woodland  featuring wetlands, Indian marker trees and babbling brooks with small waterfalls. Joe Tipton, a Black Bear Point resident, conceived, designed, and almost single-handedly built all of these trails and structures. His craftsmanship is not limited to trail bulding, however. The wooden bridges, benches, stairs and signs were masterfully hand-crafted by him using fallen trees and limbs.

We will meet at the parking lot on Wildcat Parkway for the High Gap Trail. Once the parking lot fills up, you may park on the side of Wildcat Parkway (between Wild Pansy and Amicalola Creek)

The trails committee is an all-volunteer organization that is dedicated to the upkeep, maintenance and expansion of the trails and parks of Big Canoe.

For more information on our over 20 miles of trails, please go to this webpage: https://www.bigcanoepoa.org/trails
