Trail Overview

This trail has easy access gravel road off Highway 68 in Farner. The road is 2 vehicles wide and has mostly gentle elevations. It starts out running parallel to the Hiwassee River and then a branch of Shuler Creek. Along the way, there are pullovers and an occasional campsite. The creek is wide and you'll want to keep your windows down to hear the babbling water. Look for wildlife in the form of deer, hogs, and armadillos. The path turns up on Joe Brown Highway and leads up to Unicoi Gap. Great mountain views on the way. At the top, you have access to the Benton-McKaye trail as well as a motorcycle trail and more driving. Very isolated route except during hunting season (October - January) when you need to be careful of other drivers. Any vehicle can handle the route.
