"Explore the incredible Gee Creek gorge. Leave the trailhead, walking an old roadbed, and then enter the gorge. Make a seemingly instantaneous entrance into the back of beyond—a wild, high, rock- and treerimmed chasm. Trace a slender footpath deeper into the defile, passing an old mine, a significant waterfall, and towering stone cliffs. Multiple creek crossings on the latter half of the hike add to the excitement. The hike ends a little less than 2 miles into the gorge. Allow plenty of time for your return trip, as the trail is rocky and slow." Read more

Gee Creek is spectacular. I visited during the winter when foliage was sparse. I can’t wait to go back in the fall when the leaves turn. The trails are well-maintained, and hiking this area varies from moderate to difficult. It’s a peaceful are where you can really enjoy the stunning beauty of southeastern Tennessee.
