Pine Mountain Loop Trail is a 8.2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Tallassee, Tennessee that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This loop was OK. It's a moderately difficult hike with two stream crossings that require you to ford the Abrams Creek. The second is the more challenging of the two and even with using trekking poles, it was tough going due to the depth and flow of the water. I'm 6-01 and the water came up to my waste. The best part of the hike is Hannah Mountain Trail since it is nicely wooded, quiet, and easy hiking. The ridge lines were not particularly attractive and the scenery is very limited, especially on the Pine Mountain section. Overall it was a decent hike, but not one I'm eager to replicate.
