This is a short nature trail to Little Greenbrier School in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The end destination is a neat old log cabin school. At the start of the hike there is a small hill that you go up and down.

This is a great little hike for a family. You can utilize the parking at the picnic area, and enjoy the hike before or after a picnic. Enjoy this trail as you experience what a walk to school might have been like 100 years ago. As you start up the hill the remains of a long gone homestead can be seen on your left (rock wall). As you descend you walk through a rhododendron tunnel. Before you reach the school house you will cross the creek twice on single log bridges that are railed. Hope you enjoy your little outing!
