Chimney Rocks Trail ist ein 8.4 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Greeneville, Tennessee. Er führt entlang eines Flusses und vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gejoggt werden. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

Weather was great. Sunny,warm. Some parts of the trail were steep but most was moderate. For December it was a great day for a after Christmas hike. The French Broad was a little high and swift. We all had a great time.

I recommend going during the fall when it's less over grown. The road in is very dangerous and narrow, with many potholes. ylYou will have to pull over several times in order for larger cars to go by, and be careful so that you do not fall into the water when leaving. Trail was very over grown with several orbweaver spiders throughout, so be sure to bring your sunglasses and a hiking pole to clear the webs. Otherwise the trail was great with a nice uphill and a beautiful view at the top.

This was one of the most pleasant trails I've hiked around here. Glorious views from the top (and it is up the entire way, interspersed with levelish ridge tops), and lots of wildflowers. The ridges were my favorite bits. The trail condition was very good. Highly recommended

Beautiful narrow, rocky, root-filled path. We hiked on Nov. 1 and the colors were spectacular as was the view of the river. Path was easy to follow even though there were some overgrown sections. The view of the railroad tracks traversing the river was a very nice sight.

Great views of the French Broad River & surrounding mtns. Would do this in fall and winter so you can enjoy the views. This trail is advertised as a bicycle trail also. I personally would avoid riding a bike down this trail. Seems dangerous for that. This app says 2.3 miles out & back. HOWEVER, it is 2.5 miles just to an intersecting trail...Paint Rock Trail. Thus, an out & back hike to that point is 5.0 miles. Not sure what the 2.2 mile reference is.

A little overgrown right now, though trail is still easy to follow. Nice overlooks.

We hiked this trail in late June at around noon. The wild blackberries that grow in thickets to the right hand side of the trail as you begin were just becoming ripe and we enjoyed a few before starting the journey. Just a hundred feet or so up the path we came upon some construction workers that were clearing an area which had become overgrown. We would quickly learn why... As soon as we passed the construction workers the clay path becomes a field of tall grass. The only way we were able to see which way the trail goes was by following the tall grass which had been matted down by 2 horse riders that had just passed through. The bugs were very thick and through this section in particular, and there were occasional thorns that would rip at our legs if we didn't see them first. After about 5 minutes of this we came to a tree that has fallen across the path. The clay path became visible again and we followed it up for a bit. The field now gives way to some fairly steep elevation change and a few switchbacks as we gained altitude. We again find more blackberry bushes and even some blueberry bushes. The blueberries were small, but very sweet and delicious. Another 20 minutes of hiking and we came to some of the scenic views. We were less than an hour out from where we started and could already see how far up we had climbed. The French Broad River was low from lack of rain the past few days, and we could see how many rocks and rapids there were in it. We enjoyed the views for a bit, took some water and beef jerky, and headed back down the trail because the day had become much hotter than the previous few days had been. I wouldn't mind coming back to complete the trail sometime, but we have definitely done some much better trails in the great smokey mountains. Pros: Wild blueberries and blackberries ripe in mid june-early july - Great views of the river below after just under an hour of hiking - historic section of railroad passes through the area - trail is off the beaten path so it is not very busy Cons: Trail is overgrown in sections - Trail does not appear to be maintained very well and has multiple fallen trees across the path

This trail has some great vistas overlooking the French Broad River. Trail distance is 3 miles each way.
