Cosby Horse Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Cosby Self-Guiding Nature Trail makes a great outing for families staying at the nearby campground, but it’s also worth driving here just for the hike. The trail passes through a splendid forest with many large trees. In spring wildflowers carpet the ground. Use the trail brochure to learn some of the history and nature at the numbered posts."
--Kevin Adams, Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
"This trail is much more than a campground leg-stretcher. The designer of this trail must have been an artist. The way the trail offers up the virgin forest experience is almost as impressive as the setting itself.
This amble not far from the drainage of Crying Creek is so
scenic it could almost bring tears to your eyes. Drop past the
mileage sign to an atmospheric old road grade and go right
(south) on the Low Gap Trail, following the nature trail sign. Fine views look down onto the rushing stream in a mature cove hardwood forest."
--Randy Johnson, Best Easy Day Hikes: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
