Guide: Liz Domingue

Meeting location: Cades Cove Orientation Shelter located at the beginning of the one-way Cades Cove loop road. Carpooling will be required to lessen impact on the cove. 

Be a part of a hands-on group exploration with professional naturalist, Liz Domingue and delve into a Cades Cove waterway for a closer look at the amphibians that call this place home. We’ll learn how to identify different species and about the important role they play as indicators to the health of our environment.
Mileage: 3 miles maximum
Activity Level: Easy to moderate. We will be walking along unpaved surfaces that may have trips hazards such as exposed roots and rocks. 
What to bring: In addition to plenty of water, an appropriate amount of food for your comfort, comfortable walking shoes, your favorite field guide, and something to take notes with, we also recommend that you dress in layers and bring along a backpack with rain gear. Trekking poles, water shoes and a personal first-aid kit may be helpful as well.
