Newton Bald Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"On this trip, you’ll head up the famed fishing waters of Deep Creek, the origin of many a Smoky Mountain hunting and fishing tale, to camp on a carpet of pine needles at a streamside site beneath a grove of white pines.
You will leave the Deep Creek watershed via the steep Martins Gap Trail, then reach and intersection with Sunkota Ridge Trail for some nice ridge walking to a little-used backcountry campsite, 5,000 feet up on Thomas Ridge. Finally, you’ll follow the loop south on the ridge, following Thomas Divide Trail back to Deep Creek."
