Trail Overview

Brush Creek starts out as a narrow paved road, but once it meets the western end of Weaver's Bend it transitions to gravel. This is a beautiful drive and the namesake creek parallels the road for the northern half of the route. As the road turns away from the creek it quickly ascends to the upper reaches of the ridgeline. Three-quarters of the way to the southern end of the road you'll find Allen Branch Pond. A trail traces the circumference of the pond and some benches are available. There are a few campsites along the road as well. The southern end drops down to the French Broad River before rejoining the pavement.


It seems to be well maintained and passable with a 2WD outside of heavy rains when the gravel might wash out.
