“This trail connects Thomas Divide Trail and Indian Creek Trail.”— David Hitchcock
The trail starts to descend from the Thomas Divide Trail and crosses a shallow creek via a rock hop. Then the trail descends through a stream bed that can be slippery. When the trail arrives at Indian Creek, a 25 foot log allows the trail to cross the creek with relative ease. The trail finally levels out for the last 0.1 mile as it approaches the Indian Creek Trail.
A left turn onto Indian Creek Trail brings you to Deep Creek Campground in 1.2 miles. If you turn right, you can run along Indian Creek Trail toward Campsite #46.
More information on this trail and others can be found in Hiking Trails of the Smokies.
Several varieties of wildflowers can be found in the cool coves along this trail.
