Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

May 27, 2017 Blount County: Memorial Hike to Cornelius Falls

Memorial Hike to Cornelius Falls
Saturday, May 27th

This is a moderate-difficulty hour-long hike along the Locust Fork River to the Cornelius Falls. Some folks like to go slow and talk wildflowers. Other folks scoot ahead to get in more play time at the falls. We'll eat our brown bag lunches on the sunny rocks at the falls. It's a great time of year to play in the falls, so bring wading shoes and swim wear if you like.

This is a annual joint outing with the Cahaba(Bham) Group of the Sierra Club. To carpool from Birmingham call Ken Hyche at 205-540-3930. Rendezvous at Tonka Shell Station (Hwys 79 & 160) in Cleveland at 9:30 am. We'll leave the cars at Martha & Stephen's at 10:00 am and return about 2:30.

No reservation needed but f.m.i. Stephen Guesman: friends@flfr.org or 205-919-6231.
