My wife Mary and my Dad Wesley and I took a hike this weekend (5/14/10) to the House Mountain state recreation area in Knox county, Tennessee. The hike was about 3.8 miles with a total elevation gain of around 1000 feet (940.23ft by GPS). The plot below gives the elevation profile over the course of the hike. Here is the Google Maps Version I’ve also uploaded some pictures.
