Ivy Creek Trail

Ivy Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a leg stretcher on the Appalachian Trail that leads to a rock overlook offering excellent views of Powell Gap Hollow and the mountains and farmlands to the east.

The hike begins on the south side of the Ivy Creek Overlook. Turn south onto the Appalachian Trail and begin a gradual descent amid sassafras, laurel, oak, and pine. The trail then begins to climb and makes several switchbacks, passing by several large boulders. Soon, there will be beautiful views to the east of Loft Mountain. In late summer, the trail is flanked by mint, goldenrod, and yellow daisies. In winter the trail is open and spacious and provides seemingly unending views."
