All around good trail. A few small hills for your change in elevation pleasure and level strolls down by the river to balance out the cardio. It's a great setting for the cardio impact of your choice. Seriously

Took the Wildflower Walk on the lower portion of this loop and it was wonderful. The trail is not difficult and we saw many varieties of wildflowers and enjoyed scenic views of the Clinch River and Norris Dam. Will definitely be back.

Perfect in early spring when the wildflowers blanket the forest floor. Can be a bit overgrown in late spring/early summer.
