Trail Overview

This regionally famous name is shared with a few other areas, but this might be the actual Rocky Top. It's definitely rocky and a bit inhospitable, as the song describes. While most of the road is rather tame, there are a few sections with rock ledges, and the lower elevation has some washes that are challenging to cross. A stock 4WD truck can traverse the route with some patience and a willingness to stack some rocks to clear obstacles. Cell service is available at the higher elevations but nonexistent as you enter the valley.

Difficulty

While the majority isn't difficult to drive, the ledges and washouts require patience, a good spotter, and communication.
