Council of Trees Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This 2-mile combination trail begins on the paved, barrier-free Council House Trail and almost immediately meets the Council of Trees Trail and heads uphill into a wooded area for a more secluded hike. You will pass an interesting stone overlook, returning down the hill and over a boardwalk to connect back to the Council House Trail, which leads you through the area where the last Council of the Cherokee Nation met in 1835 before the Cherokee were forced to walk the Trail of Tears."
