Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This secluded hike skirts the lower reaches of Mount Le Conte. Pass a collection of former farms and homesites dotting Greenbrier. End at the Injun Creek backcountry campsite, #32, just above which lies a wrecked steam engine tractor, a high-tech contraption that crashed before the park was established.

Hikers heading here in fall will have the easiest stream crossings and the driest trail. Wildflowers are abundant in spring. Winter is a good time to see the plentiful trailside homesites. Summer could be warm."

"Take a walk through time on this hike, which skirts the lower reaches of Mount LeConte, passing a collection of former farms and homesites that dot the Greenbrier area. The hike culminates at Injun Creek Backcountry Campsite, above which lies an old steam engine, a relic of the settler days in the Smokies. This isolated, historic walk is one of the most underrated and underused in the park."
