Hall Bend Trail is a 5 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Loudon, TN that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
The Hall's Bend (Boy Scout) trail is an excellent hiking trail right here in Tellico Village. The trail is located in the north end of the Village. It follows the Tellico Lake shoreline for the first part of the trail and then climbs several steep hills to offer some great winter views of Tellico.
It was a good hike. Great views.
Easy trail with some small hills, but on a beautiful day it's very well worth it.
I got to walk this with my 5 year old son. It was great for both of us. Beautiful views and I loved the benches placed along the trail.
Easy to access, some nice rolling hills and climbs for flavor, and can jump in the lake for a cool down after hot day excursion!
This is a nice easy 5 mile trail in the TVA Hall Bend Small Wild Area. The trail is well marked once your get into the woods with a single white blaze. This trail is dog friendly and you should expect to see most dogs off their leash. This trail gives great views of Tellico lake for the first approximately 2/3rds of the trail. The last third of the trail takes you back to the trailhead and parallels Tellico Parkway. There are no lake views on this part of the trail and you will hear cars traveling on the parkway. This trail is maintained by BSA Troop 354 and they do a great job. I walked the trail yesterday, 10SEP16, and they were installing a bridge across a drainage ditch. There are better trails than this to hike in the GSMNP but if you live in the Lenoir City area you should give this trail a try.
The trail was flat mostly with good views of lake and sunset. The trail easily leads into another if you aren't watching for the yellow tree markers
This is a nice place to walk and let the dog play in the water! We had a good time!
I run this trail often. The incline at about 2.5 mi (if you go clockwise, is tough. Love this trail.
After hiking in the GSMNP for 4 days, this was a wind down hike near family. We were misled by the 1.6 mile reported distance and only 22 feet of elevation. We did 4 miles of this trail with another mile or so optional. Most would be considered "easy", but there was some "moderate" mixed in. We enjoyed hiking next to the water all the way. A nice little workout.
Trail is well maintained and includes benches and informational sign posts describing flora and fauna built by BSA Troop 354. The trail climbs to highest elevation near the 2.7 mile mark and average views of the Little Tennessee River can be enjoyed, all views include house and/or bridges. When leaving parking lot take small trail next to water's edge to enjoy some small trails that trace the lake's shoreline before you arrive at main trail. When you arrive at small dam follow gravel drive toward Telico Parkway and return trail will be on the right and marked with white paint on a tree. The return trail is uneventful and has a lot of road noise, but is not right next to the road. This is a good trail to visit if you are already near Lenoir City, but not worth a special trip.
Good, easy hike with the dogs! We went a little over 5 miles but you can easily do more or less. I do a lot of hiking, in the Smokies mostly, and this trail has nice water views and is pretty easy with a few inclines.
Good walk in the woods minimal hills but nice
While we did enjoy this trail, it certainly was not "easy." I considered "easy" something my mom can do and this was definitely not something she would have been able to complete. We are from the mountains so a few hills don't scare us off, but I would consider this "moderate" or even "difficult" at times for the average person, especially this time of year with all the leaves on the ground.
Hiked this trail with kids in late April. It was a beautiful hike with nice views of the lake. We saw 13 different types of wildflowers on the hike. Easy enough to bring the grandparents along next time.
This is an excellent hike/run trail. It is well maintained and offers good views of the lake. Only one steep incline that looks out across Tellico lake towards the Wind River development.
