Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park
by Kevin Adams (Falcon Guides)
Although the Twentymile area is one of the more remote sections of the park, it
receives a surprising amount of use. Expect some company on a weekend hike or any
day during the busy seasons of summer and autumn. The park has installed
foot logs at the six crossings of Moore Springs
Branch and at the Twentymile Creek crossing.
As with most foot logs in the park, these foot
logs could still wash away in flood conditions,
and without them, you’ll have to wade.
Day & Overnight Hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
by Johnny Molloy (Menasha Ridge Press)
This streamside loop hike never gets too far from the sound of falling water, one of the key ingredients of Smokies ambiance. This is one of the most rewarding out-of-theway trips in the park. The hike travels along Twentymile Creek then veers left on Wolf Ridge Trail, with Moore Spring Branch, a fine trout stream, as your noisy companion. Turn east on Twentymile Loop Trail to hike into deep woods, over Long Hungry Ridge, and down to Twentymile Trail. Follow Twentymile Creek as it cascades down toward Cheoah Lake.
This is a very scenic hike. The route description is very accurate. The hike to the firetower is beautiful only to be eclipsed by the view from the top of the firetower. This is a must hike.
