Trail Overview

This gravel road runs beside the Hiwassee River for the first 2.25 miles, which is absolutely stunning. At mile 1.25 there is a place to park for a hike to what some people call Lookout Rock. The hiking trail is not marked, but it is easy to follow the worn path that everyone has followed. Although this is a very steep and strenuous hike it is a must-do if you are in this area. After you cross the railroad tracks you will start following Spring Creek which is a small creek that you will follow for the rest of this road. The entire road is gravel and easily drivable with any type of vehicle. We had cell service for pretty much the entire time we were on this road (Verizon). There are several level places to pull off the road and disperse camp and there are also marked areas to camp. At about 4.5 miles there's a shooting range.
