Trail Overview

Paint Mountain is a great way to connect Hurricane Gap to the east, with some of the other roads and trails west of this area. It's 1 to 1.5 cars wide and outside of a few rough sections, the gravel is well maintained. At the southern terminus, you'll find the Chimney Rocks trailhead and French Broad River. In the Fall and Winter, this route offers amazing views of foliage and the mountainous landscape. Few camping areas are available due to the steep terrain, but there are lots of options in the surrounding area. At the southern terminus, you'll find Paint Creek Road. This paved route connects with Hurricane Creek and offers picnic areas, waterfalls, and camping along the way.
