Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This hike provides a good opportunity to get deep into the Smokies without making an overly strenuous effort. You get to experience a few miles of the Smokies crest (without views, though), and after the first 4.0 miles, you have the hike pretty much to yourself. A couple of camping options allow you to do the hike as an overnighter or a lazy two-nighter. If you’re up to it, the hike is doable as a long day hike. The first 7.8 miles of this hike are also covered in Hikes 12 and 15. Refer to them for more details. The hike begins on Middle Prong Trail as a continuation of the gravel road behind the gate. Cross the creek on a footbridge and stay to the left after crossing to remain on the main road." Read more
