Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

If fishing is more your speed, you’ll surely enjoy the Hiwassee and Tellico Rivers; both are popular spots for reeling in large trout. These are just a sampling of outdoor activities in the area; don’t forget about hiking, hunting, mountain biking, shooting ranges, boating, water-skiing, nature photography, and wildlife viewing.

The campgrounds in this eTrail include: Jake Best, Indian Boundary, North River, Dam Creek, Spivery Cove, Davis Branch, State Line, Holly Flatts, Quinn Springs, Lost Creek, Cholhowee, Parksville Lake, Thunder Rock, Sylco, and Tumbling Creek."
