Located in the Northern Cherokee National Forest- Horsecove Gap, Forestry Service Road 5352 in Washington County,TN. Relatively easy trail out and back, couple of deep mudholes along the road, couple off camber spots, a little spooky. Don't go alone. Open September 20 through December 17 only.

Is it a good trail for just hiking?

Hard drive, but too views are beautiful.

Fun for jeep driving. Not a difficult drive, but very narrow and not many places to turn around. If you have a mid to full size truck be prepared for limb scratches and a lot of reverse driving to get out of there.
