A fun course with a couple of hills.

Overview

This is a smooth and scenic singletrack with a couple of bridges that get slick when wet. Runners will enjoy great lake views along the way.

Need to Know

This is TVA mixed use land, so there are sometimes hunters present. Bright colors are suggested during hunting season.

Runner Notes

This trail is mostly runnable, but there are a few sharp turns and roots that can trip you up.

Description

This is a simple lollipop run that can be chained together with other trails in the area for a longer run. The trailhead is located at the end of Glendale Road. Follow the trail for about 0.5 miles until it splits. Stick to the left; run up over the hill, then bear right at the next split at the bottom of the hill. Continue on around, enjoying the views of the lake from the power cut and then at the bench at the point.

History & Background

This course was developed by the Tellico Watershed Association.
