Cataloochee Divide Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Cataloochee Divide Trail rewards whether you do the entire, daylong 12.8-mile out-and-back enchilada, or just hike the 1.2 miles to the overlook. It is a trail for both the avid outdoors person and the family looking for a challenging, but not death-defying, scenery-packed outing."
--Joe Miller, 100 Classic Hikes in North Carolina (The Mountaineers Books).
