North loop A is around 4 miles and loop B is around 6.5 miles, you can do either or combine. It is groomed in winter for fat bikes, but you can also x/c ski or snowshoe. The north loops allow dogs, which is a great option to share outdoor fun. Leashes are REQUIRED. There can be a fair amount of users so be respectful. There are additional x/c-only groomed trails south of the highway but they do not permit dogs.
I ski'd the B loop with my dog on the day after New Years in 15-degree weather and ran into 2 other skiers and 4 fat-bikers.
Enjoyable rolling terrain with a couple moderate hills to ski down and climb. 90% is winding through timber which is a great atmosphere, especially with a fresh snow load on the tree branches.
Farragut is a state park, so daily use fee or annual vehicle sticker is required.
The trail was so well maintained and clear, There were no trees down, or any sort of rock blockage on the trail.it was smooth and flowy on the mountain bike with no obsticals or technical sections. Other than the length of the trail i would rate it as a green/ easy. It is beautiful but the down side is that there was no view at the top.
Our scout troop cut 144 trees out of this trail in a time period of 4 days. It was destroyed with blow down this year from the storms. If you connect this trail with (Farragut) Scout Trail then the High Point Trail to finally connect with the Buttonhook bay trail leading all the way to the boat launch. Makes for a great day!!!
Overall pleasant hike. Mostly shaded, few seasonal streams for water. Grade was mostly pleasant, just a few steep spots.
Trail encroached by plants in a few places. Signage near the trail head is confusing, but trail is easy to follow once away from trail head.
