Benton MacKaye Trail - Thunder Rock Campground to Kimsey Mountain Hwy is a 13.3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Sharp Place, Tennessee that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, camping, and backpacking and is accessible year-round.
This section of the BMT is mostly uphill. There are few places that level off allowing you to rest. Trail is well maintained and narrow in places. Blazes do not mark the trail in the Wilderness Area. I did see a bear.
