Description

The trail is roughly 2.6 miles from the Abrams Falls Campground at the junction with the Cooper Road Trail.

The trail climbs (300 feet of elevation gain) along an old road toward the park boundary. The trail alternates between sections that are rocky and rough and sections that are sandy and smooth. At mile 0.8, the trail reaches the park boundary. The trail continues outside of the park for another 0.2 miles until the trail ends at the main road of Top of the World Estates.

More information on this trail and others can be found in Hiking Trails of the Smokies.
