Description

This is a scenic and smooth dirt/gravel road that follows along the north rim of Bays Mountain Park. The elevation is rolling along the ridge with great views of Kingsport in the winter time. Be aware that the terrain is steep at the southern end, where the trail comes to an end at Feagan's Gap with an intersection with Black Hollow Road. If you're taking this trail north, you'll start this trail with a steep climb.
