Cloudland is a beautiful hike. Last time we were there it was fall, and the colors were amazing. Now, of course, there were few leaves other than evergreens, but the hike was still very nice. It has enough waterfall views and bluff views to satisfy even the greediest eyes.
For some reason our group ended up being small. Even a week ago it was at capacity and we had a waiting list, but by the night before it was down to 14 people, and six of those didn't show. However, along the trail we ran into the Soddy-Daisy chapter of the TTA, whom some of us had hiked with before. There were a lot of folks out enjoying the day - maybe Nashville was cocooning, but not everyone else!
