Trail was pretty steep, but a great hike. It was also longer than 3.1 miles.

A little steeper than anticipated. Overall, nice trail! Being 6mo pregnant didn’t make things super easy, so we didn’t make it the entire way.

Dog friendly, very steep, not much to look at. Trail head is easy to miss so look for the trail marker. Lots of rocks on the trail that are loose so not great conditions.

This is one of the shortest and easiest ways to hike to the Holston Mountain ridgeline from the Sullivan County side. Once at the top, you can easily make the short hike up Panhandle Road to the Rye Patch peak (second highest on Holston) or cross the road to take a trail down into Carter County. The trail is well used and in reasonably good condition, with some of the nicest views on the mountain. I like to do this trail at least once a year.

Nice hike but the views were definitely on the way up and not a clearing.

The end is not worth effort, good work out though. Probably should be rated hard.

Good hiking/jogging trail. Great views of the lake this time of year and the Tri-Cities area.

First to Review

Walked about 3/4 of this trail from forest service road 87 today. Beautiful 120 degree views of holston lake, bristol speedway and bays mountain in the distance. Perhaps done best when leaves are down--as they were today.
