the Cherokee national forest website has the wrong map for the Holston mountain zone, have contacted several times in 3 months and still not corrected. For a great map of Holston Mountain trails:

The trail that goes off the left side of the page past Flint rock overlook connects to the AT between 91 and 421 just yards north of the AT shelter.

Started at the gate to the fire tower, then continued out to flint rock overlook. beautiful views of South Holston lake and the speedway! took old service road 4202 back. Nice easy hike, 7.35 miles.

This is a great trail for beginners. I took my son on this trail when he was 8. It was his first hike. You can follow this trail out to the AT and continue on to 19E or hike in and out. There are some nice areas for camping along the trail. I have hiked this trail for many years. It's a great place to see wild life. Near the beginning of the trail there is an old fire tower which makes a great picnic area for short family hikes.
