Trail Overview

Gravel Road through the GSMNP Cataloochee area to Big Creek. The road is suitable for most vehicles, but higher clearance is recommended due to some rocky areas. The road will close during big weather events like snowstorms, so it is best to check road status before departing. There are nice vistas and creek/river areas. The road climbs from the valley floor over Mt. Sterling.
