Unicoi Gap and Indian Grave Gap Loop Reviews

It was 6.5 miles according to GPS and took us 4.5 hours with a teen and a lunch break. Take the loop counterclockwise. The first few miles are rocky and steep, but the backside of the mountain make it SOOO worth it. Enjoy streams all through the hike. Well worth the day!!
