Brady Mountain Trail

Brady Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail ascends up to the top of Brady Mountain, which is one of the Crab Orchard Mountains. For much of the distance, you are following the ridge of Brady Mountain. In the fall and winter, with the leaves off the trees, the ridge gives great views both to the west toward the Cumberland Plateau and east toward the Tennessee Ridge and Valley.

Brady Mountain is part of the Crab Orchard Mountain chain that also includes Black, Buck, and Hinch Mountains. This small mountain chain represents the northern extension of a large fold of the bedrock called the “Sequatchie Anticline,” a long
fold of rock that once extended from these Crab Orchard Mountains down into Alabama and was folded during the same process that created the Smokies—the Allegheny Orogeny."
