Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club


TATC LogoThe Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club (TATC) is an energetic group, open to individuals and families, whose primary purpose is to maintain a 10+ mile section of the Appalachian Trail (AT). The Club is centered in Norfolk, VA, and draws membership from Hampton Roads and surrounding areas. The club also maintains the Osmanthus Trail at First Landing State Park, the White Rocks Falls Trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Mau-Har Trail off of the Appalachian Trail, and a number of trails in the St. Mary's Wilderness. In addition to trail maintenance, the TATC offers a wide range of outdoor recreational activities, including backpacking, day hiking, canoeing, kayaking, biking, car camping, white water rafting, skiing, rock climbing, rappelling, nature watching, and of course, eating!  Educational events such as Map & Compass, Leadership and Wilderness First Aid are also scheduled. The TATC general meeting is held on the second Wednesday of every month (except in December) at the new Pretlow Library, 111 West Ocean View Avenue, Norfolk, Virginia at the corner of Ocean View Avenue and Granby St. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. Visitors are always welcome.
