Description

Hannah's Creek Trail starts at a junction with Robbins Branch Trail in the southwest part of the BIrkhead Mountains Wilderness. It soon crosses Robbins Branch and then roughly parallels its namesake creek. This trail is an easy outing, without any long or steep hills.

Along the way visitors can spot the tumbled chimneys of old homesteads. Camp #4, one of the backcountry campsites established by the Boy Scouts who built the trails in the 1970's, is located not far off the trail.

The trail ends at a junction with the Birkhead Mountain Trail, not far from the Bingham Graveyard and Camp #6.
