Boogerman Trail

Boogerman Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike delivers national-park-level scenery on the east end of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Explore an assortment of pioneer homesites, old-growth trees, and mountain streams. And you will be very familiar with the streams, first heading up Caldwell Fork.

Turn up Palmer Branch to visit Robert “Boogerman” Palmer’s homestead. Pass big trees, then descend Snake Branch with more homesites, rich with relics and big trees, too. Hike back down Caldwell Fork, crossing it on numerous fun footlog bridges that enhance your looks at the crystalline Carolina stream."
