Trail Overview

This is the only unpaved route across South Holston Mountain. There are many off shoot trails that are open seasonally, but the main route isn't ever closed. You can access the Appalachian Trail from the precipice of the trail. There is an old sand mine coming up from the Denton Valley side, and many other areas to explore. Certain areas of the route, mainly towards the top are narrow and require a vehicle to pull to the shoulder to pass. There are blind curves, so please be courteous and careful.
