Bring your compass or pay real close attention to the mileposts - this is one of the twistiest, curviest rides around. These brand new trails are on a series of low ridges above Hiwassee Lake north of Murphy. More mileage is planned for the future. Until the system is complete, this figure eight loop will keep you plenty busy. Don't get lost.

This trail is quite nice. It is more like 10 miles instead of 4. The trail is fairly unused at this time. It is definitely worth a stop on the way to Tsali. You can get a map at the Ranger Station.
