Audie Murphy Monument Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This Appalachian Trail hike takes you from bucolic Craig Creek into the Brush Mountain East Wilderness, where you climb Brush Mountain on piney ridges. Once atop Brush, the AT picks up an old roadbed and leads you to a spur trail and the Audie Murphy Monument, commemorating the most decorated American soldier of World War II.

A stellar view awaits of the Craig Creek Valley just beyond the monument. Though the hike is never steep, it does gain 1,500 feet from bottom to top."
