Southeastern Appalachian Playground

This trail is exceptionally maintained, and very well marked. Over 76 miles there were very few instances where felled trees blocked the trail. The trail offers everything from wild trout water and suspension bridges, to dry oak ridges and stunning mountain views. With a variety of wildflowers and strong white pines, and amphibians, fish, and other wildlife, this trail offers anything that an outdoorsy individual may be looking for!
