Beautiful trail in the Chilhowee system! Recent rains made the initial river crossing on the approach trail from Clemmer Trailhead a little challenging but not impassable. Climbs and creeks and rhododendrons and winter mountain views. Our doggy couldn't get enough! Made a loop by connecting to the Clemmer Trail and back - around 12 miles with a detour to Benton Falls. Several water crossings so come prepared

An awesome little known trail! I hiked a loop....up the Clemmer Trail and back down this one. This is the best trail in the Chilhowee Trail system! Great views about midway on a fall or winter day. You get a great view of Big Frog and Little Frog, as well as the mountains of the Citigo.

Clear Creek Trail elevates quickly and can be hard going up or down depending on the season. If you plan to do a one way, be sure to shuttle, otherwise you're in for a much longer hike than expected. Well marked trail. Good leg and glute workout.

This overlooked gives you a challenging backcountry ride. It is difficult, going up or down but worth the challenge. Easy way is down and ride Clemmer back to the top. Very well marked with a lot more trails to explore on top.
