Description

The Crest Trail can be accessed via West Overlook Trail (0.8 miles) or Mountain Trail (1 mile).

On the western side of the Crest Trail is the West Overlook - providing a view of the Cumberland Mountains to the North and the Smokies to the South.

The Crest Trail continues eastward uphill until it dead-ends at the East Overlook. The East Overlook is considered the more spectacular view of the two, offering a view of the Clinch and Unaka Mountain Range. Runners will proceed to backtrack from the East Overlook back to the trail junction at Crest Trail and Mountain Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Hawks, grouse, woodpeckers, tanagers, turkeys, and many other birds.
