This short loop hike traverses a seldom-visited area of the Smokies. Beginning at Lakeview Drive, you hike down to Fontana Lake. The trail moves away from the lake, passing several old homesites along the way, then returns to Lakeview Drive through Lakeview Tunnel. Several old roads and trails branch off Goldmine Loop Trail, so watch your direction.

Really fun trail - in addition to great scenery there is a lake and a tunnel.
