Great trail, not a lot of views, but on a hot day this trail has a lot of shade coverage. Beautiful in the trees, trail is well groomed. Hike is long and a steady up hill climb.

This is a long, difficult trail. It took us all day out and back.The view at the top is okay, but it's still pretty neat up there. Would do again!

I went as far as the lake viewpoint before turning around. I want to plan for time and do the full hike soon! Gorgeous trail and views.

Let me start off by saying that if this trail is new to you, expect to do more distance than what others report the trail is unless your following a recording. Multiples of trails and road cross each other in this park and it's very easy to follow another route.

I just finished this trail today, not another soul was to be seen during my 8.3 mile loop. The weather was perfect, nice and cool with thunder in the distance. The trail itself was wet but not muddy or soggy, great for walking on. No snow, puddles or Creeks to cross either. Remember Farragut is a state park so a fee is required if you don't have the pass.

I rode this trail today on a mountain bike. The snow is melted in Farragut State Park, and most of the mud is gone. It was still a little chilly, but a pleasant ride just the same. These trails are ready to hike and bike for the year!

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.

Today, I managed about half of this trail on snowshoes. The snow was several feet deep, and the trail hard to find. This would be a fierce hike, even in fair weather. I will be back to conquer this, come spring!

The north side may not have the lake, but it has its own beauty. A little more secluded than the south side, you are less likely to run into people, but you have the possibility of running into horse back riders. A nice easy hike!

This is a nice and easy, peaceful hike. Farragut State Park has so much to offer in its beauty and trails. Northside Loop does have more people on it than the south side however.

Nice easy trail, didn't see anyone else very peaceful.

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!!!
