Trail Overview

The Frye Mountain - High Ridge to Getchell trail is a West to East crossing through the Frye Mountain State Game Management Area. This trail is just over 8 miles passing by the Carter Cemetery and includes a small 3 mile (out and back) to another private Cemetery, where the trail becomes a turnaround for Jeep-sized vehicles. The Trail does offer a few additional spurs to be explored and is even more expansive for ATVs and Snowmobiles (in the winter). For hikers, this trail provides access to the footpath to Frye Mountain Peak at 1,139 feet, and multiple access points to the larger "Hills to Sea" Trail network.
