Crawfish/Channel Rock Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Originating in the flat bottomland and old fields of Crawfish Valley, the Crawfish–Channel Rock Trail ascends Brushy Mountain on steep, narrow footpaths to run northeast parallel to Walker Mountain. En route, you’ll cross the Tennessee Valley Divide, where Reed Creek and Bear Creek vividly illustrate the effects of the divide.
Flowing off opposite sides of the divide, each enters separate, ever-expanding stream networks that eventually reach the Ohio River, albeit 100 miles distant from one another. Deer and raccoons forage along the stream edges; turkeys and ruffed grouse hunt for acorns on the slopes of Brushy and Walker Mountains. Beavers leave the most lasting impression: a two-stage dam you’ll traverse on Bear Creek."
