Tsali Trails - Mouse Branch Loop Trail with overlook loop is a 8 mile loop trail located near Robbinsville, North Carolina. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and mountain biking.
From car to car it's actually 8.5 miles. Beautiful hike and loved the trails. Felt sorry for the lady whose husband drug her through on a bike going in the not recommended direction. The hills in that direction were killers. What I loved most is with three of our four hikers having knee, feet, and hip issues, we really wanted a hike without the steep climbs most of this region has to offer. And we still got the beautiful views a peak climb would offer!
Mouse Branch trail was fun. You can move at a fast pace. Slope up to the overlook is a little tricky. Overall I think it should rate as an easy-moderate. Good trails, but lots of rocks.
The overlook loop is awesome. Not to be missed.
Awesome trail that loops back to parking area. Great views of Fontana Lake. Hope to get back there soon.
