One of the best hikes to see blooming mountain laurels (in June), Rocky Top is also the summit that inspired Felice and Boudleaux Bryant to write the eponymous song, that is now an official Tennessee State song and the unofficial University of Tennessee fight song. The hike is challenging but the views are stunning. There is a chance to see black bears, especially in spring/summer when the females are with cubs.

I was too late to see the mountain laurels and rhododendrons in bloom, I'll have to come back! The views from Rocky Top as well as from the junction between Spence Field and Bote Mountain Trails are amazing. The weather was cloudy and it might be useful to know that it gets dark fast on some of the trails, especially on the Bote Mountain portion (which is also where I saw bears, a bit too close to the trail for comfort). When I hiked this, it was drizzling, but there are a bunch of picnic areas along this trail, so it's easy to find a dry spot to rest, eat and enjoy the views. Highly recommended hike!

Nice peaceful hike. If you plan on camping overnight, I recommend camp site 9 plenty of room and great creek view.

We rode Anthony Creek couple weeks ago. My group threw out the orange tape tied to sticks to mark the yellow jackets. Problem was we threw them when we hit them so could vary where they landed as we were trying to get out of them. Very mean. I think the bears had been digging in some nest an got them stirred up. Be careful take sting meds. We were on horses.

We took Anthony creek trail to, bote mountain, to lead cove trail because of killer yellow jackets! The hike is pretty strenuous going up and a little more challenging due to it being a horse trail! A group of horses came through and hit a nest and bees went everywhere! Stinging he horses and riders! We were terrified and made a loop to get out! Be very careful, there were supposedly red flags along the trail but we didn't see any until the end!

This trail is used by horses as well. The climb up can get steep towards the end. The trails is very rocky like most trails around the Cades Cove area. But is has great scenery and foot bridges to cross the stream. There is a great campsite along the trail, but no privacy for using the facilities as the trail goes right above the campsite. I have used this trail as a connector for other hikes.

Great hike. Strenuous going up to Bote Mountain awesome changes in undergrowth. Trails are Rocky. Small rocks. But other than that a nice hike. 13.2 miles in 6 hrs 10 min with a couple Cliff bar breaks Plenty of camping spots if you're interested

Hiked this to Bote Mtn to AT to Spence Field and and on to Rocky Top. This trail specifically was absolutely gorgeous with all the green coming in. Fairly easy climb to Bote Mountain.

Hiked this in the same direction as previous reviewers. I found this to be a great hike with mostly easy grades. I loved Spence Field area with its great views. Coming down from Russell I found it to be a little greasy in the snow but a wonderful hike. Overall I would rate this as a great loop hike in either direction.

Difficult trail, made increasingly difficult by the rocks remaining unsettled due to the horse traffic.

We hiked Anthony Creek to Bote Mtn. Trail. We took Bote to Spence Field and down the AT to Russell Field trail. Russell took us back to Anthony and then on to Cades Cove. The first part up to Spence Field was almost all up hill. Once reaching Spence Field the rest of the hike was relatively easy. The total miles were 13.2. It took us 5:48 to complete this hike. The best part of the hike to me was Russell. We ran across many gorgeous flowers and unique mushrooms. There were many giant trees along the way. Eric and Karen

Despite the rather recent great work to remedy significant erosion on the Bote Mtn Trail,there remains some pretty deep eroded areas on parts of the trail.I like the Lead Cove to Bote Mtn route to Thunderhead as opposed to Anthony Creek although both are nice.For all Tennessee Vol fan hikers,the pilgrimage to Rocky Top should be a yearly requirement.What a neat place and wonderful 360 degree view!

Actually went from the picnic area at Cades Cove to the the highest peak of Thunderhead, Rocky Top was best. A great challenge for a day hike. Can't wait to do it again. A great hike to see wildlife too. Downside, a huge amount of horse poop on the trail....yuck!!!!!
