Notably used by the 506th PIR (as well as other units) for training prior to action in World War Two, Currahee (meaning "stand alone" in Cherokee) was used as both for conditioning runs, as well as the regiment's motto of, "we stand alone." 3 miles up, 3 miles down!

Given that you're running in the footsteps of paratroopers from WWII, this trail is one of best I've done. We ran/walked this (mostly ran) and had a blast. How this got rated as "Easy" is scary. The last 1/4 mile is completely uphill.

Ok, if you run this... It is not easy. Steep inclines and steep declines. However, my dad and I are WW2 buffs, and have developed a following for the 506th Paratroopers (Band of Brothers). We've run this twice, and if you are not in peak physical condition, running this is hard. The view is totally worth it. That being said, walking or driving doesn't count

nice views if you like graffiti covered mountain summits with radio towers.

Hiked up the road this morning. Started out good, but does get steep at the end. Straight up. The view was GREAT! I would just drive up in the future and park. Has huge rock so take spray paint.
