Nolichucky Gorge Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike leaves the state-line ridge dividing Tennessee and North Carolina and then ventures into the rim of the Nolichucky River Gorge, where hikers soak in a spectacular view of this whitewater rafting locale and the ridges rising above it. From there, pass an isolated mountain stream, and then work back up to the trailhead. Th e entire hike is on doubletrack trail, making the footing easy. Elevation changes are not excessive, either."

"This solitude-filled hike starts at the crest of the North Carolina-Tennessee state line, then works out to the rim of the 1,000-foot-deep Nolichucky River Gorge, where hikers are rewarded with a magnificent panorama of this whitewater rafting destination and the ridges forming the foreboding defile. Cruise along the edge of the rim, passing occasional wildlife clearings then ascend back to the state line trailhead. The hiking is easy on the feet, being a doubletrack path its entire distance."
