The Hall's Bend (Boy Scout) trail is an excellent hiking trail right here in Tellico Village. The trail is located in the north end of the Village. It follows the Tellico Lake shoreline for the first part of the trail and then climbs several steep hills to offer some great winter views of Tellico.

The Hall Bend Trail is a leisurely 5 mile loop that offers great views of the Little Tennessee River from long stretches along it's shores and a few high points in it's vicinity. These high points provide the only couple of moderately intense elevation changes but are rewarded with the trail's best vantage points of the river. The roughly last 1/3 of the loop runs parallel the Tellico Parkway and may be a turn of to hikers seeking to escape the noise of parkway traffic.

Definitely a good place to go if you want a relatively easy trail with pretty water views. Could also probably haul a kayak to the beginning section for a calmer area to paddle

LOTS of dogs & all were off leash. Tennessee does have a leash law and while I think it’s great to let dogs run free, this is not a place to bring dogs that aren’t always friendly with others. I kept my dog on leash the whole time, but I was the only one doing so.

Went looking for a "hiking" trail; this turned out to be more of a "dog walking/urban exercise" trail. Lots of dogs, (my pup loved it, but if your dog is the anti-social type, this is probably not the place for you), so watch your step! Lots of doggy droppings! Not very difficult, one or two minor hills. A good portion of the trail runs parallel to a busy road, lots of very "non-serene" traffic noise. This trail also seems to be prettily heavily travelled.If you just want a decent place to take a walk, this is ok. If you like more of an actual backwoods hiking experience, definitely go somewhere else.

Love this trail! It's very scenic and great for beginners. My husband and I accidentally found 'Huff Cemetery' while hiking. I haven't had luck finding information about the individuals buried here. It seems odd that it's 'Huff' cemetery yet the headstones only read 'Blair' (George and Charley). Would love to know more history! There aren't any signs or references to let you know where the cemetery is - we just happened to see it.

This was the best trail!! My dog jumped in the lake and ran all over the place. He loved it!! can't wait to go back!

The trail meanders around the river making for beautiful views! Mostly very flat and easy. There are 2-3 steep hills but are still manageable with any type of hiker. There were several rest stops with benches. These was a quiet and peaceful trail!

A few steep climbs and some steep descents but overall an easy hike. Lots of dogs so watch where you step!

Nice trail with some challenges..a couple of benches in the prime viewing spots. We did encounter a few dogs not on leashes chasing a deer into the lake which scared the kids a little, other than that a nice walk through the woods

Nice trail with a couple spots with great views. Spots on the trail had a feeling of being further away from civilizationthan you really are.

Nice easy trail, just enough incline periodically to get the heart rate up.

Not a bad practice trail close to home to help keep your endurance up when you can't run off to the mountains. Enjoyed it.

Great Hike. Most people there had dogs that were not on a leash. I always keep my dogs on a leash

I love a trail that follows the edge of water. This trail is exactly that. It's a fairly easy trail, parts of it remind me of the northern west coast. My husband and dog were big fans of this trail as well.
If you are scared of dogs you should probably not hike there as everybody we encountered was hiking with their furry companion.

Such a cool adventure, start to finish. Tons to explore along the coast of the water. Little peninsulas you can wander out onto for 360 views of water. :) take the dogs!

Great hike with the pups! However, this is the one place where I always find ticks on them after their hikes. We've been all over in the mountains and this is always the place I find them on my girls after our hikes.

Easy trail with some small hills, but on a beautiful day it's very well worth it.

I got to walk this with my 5 year old son. It was great for both of us. Beautiful views and I loved the benches placed along the trail.

Easy to access, some nice rolling hills and climbs for flavor, and can jump in the lake for a cool down after hot day excursion!

This is a nice easy 5 mile trail in the TVA Hall Bend Small Wild Area. The trail is well marked once your get into the woods with a single white blaze. This trail is dog friendly and you should expect to see most dogs off their leash. This trail gives great views of Tellico lake for the first approximately 2/3rds of the trail. The last third of the trail takes you back to the trailhead and parallels Tellico Parkway. There are no lake views on this part of the trail and you will hear cars traveling on the parkway. This trail is maintained by BSA Troop 354 and they do a great job. I walked the trail yesterday, 10SEP16, and they were installing a bridge across a drainage ditch. There are better trails than this to hike in the GSMNP but if you live in the Lenoir City area you should give this trail a try.

The trail was flat mostly with good views of lake and sunset. The trail easily leads into another if you aren't watching for the yellow tree markers

This is a nice place to walk and let the dog play in the water! We had a good time!

I run this trail often. The incline at about 2.5 mi (if you go clockwise, is tough. Love this trail.

After hiking in the GSMNP for 4 days, this was a wind down hike near family. We were misled by the 1.6 mile reported distance and only 22 feet of elevation. We did 4 miles of this trail with another mile or so optional. Most would be considered "easy", but there was some "moderate" mixed in. We enjoyed hiking next to the water all the way. A nice little workout.

Trail is well maintained and includes benches and informational sign posts describing flora and fauna built by BSA Troop 354. The trail climbs to highest elevation near the 2.7 mile mark and average views of the Little Tennessee River can be enjoyed, all views include house and/or bridges. When leaving parking lot take small trail next to water's edge to enjoy some small trails that trace the lake's shoreline before you arrive at main trail. When you arrive at small dam follow gravel drive toward Telico Parkway and return trail will be on the right and marked with white paint on a tree. The return trail is uneventful and has a lot of road noise, but is not right next to the road. This is a good trail to visit if you are already near Lenoir City, but not worth a special trip.
