Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike is a great way for hikers of any ability to soak in some special Southern Appalachian high country. Start high on a lesservisited segment of the Appalachian Trail. Head northbound on the shoulder of Unaka Mountain, making your way through varied forest environments. Th e AT rises to enter a deep, dark world of evergreen spruce trees. Top out on the mountain at nearly 5,200 feet, where the Emerald Forest displays an ecosystem not found elsewhere in the Tri-Cities region."
