Beautiful view but steep hike out and depending on the time of year the trail is COVERED in stinging nettle.

After about a mile up the service road you reach the fire tower. The trail continues into the woods (blue blaze markers) at the bend in the service road right before turning to go up to the fire tower. However, the Trail is still VERY overgrown. I hacked about .2-.3 of a mile into it John Muir style but it just wasn’t worth it. If you are looking to get to flint rock for the overlook just take the flint mill trail instead.

Highly overgrown! It was a guess as to which way the trial went a head of you. I DO NOT recommend doing right now. I turned back after a short bit to be safe.

The first mile and the last half mile is nice. In summer it is easy to miss the HMT near the tower. It is not really near the tower, but it starts on the road curve behind you when you look at the tower. Then, it is the 2 miles of hike in stinging nettle (summer the trail is overgrown with them). The map do not show the 0.5 extra walk to the flint rock, which should be the main destination. The view from the flint rock is pretty nice, but the hike there is not really.

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: http://bchet.org/trailspublic-lands/sullivan-carter-county-trail 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.

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.
