“A short out-and-back with views of Cumberland, TN.”— April French
Continue to hang left to follow the paved trail around the hillside. The trail splits off from another overlook and turns to dirt as it swings left of a communication building. The turn is well-marked and signs indicate that the Sugar Trail is 1.7 miles away. While there are not blazes, the trail is wide and very easy to follow.
The trail meanders over short hills as it descends toward Lewis Hollow. Go right past the sign for the Sugar Trail (on left) to find a bench and the sign for the Lewis Hollow Trail. This trail goes off to the right and descends down to the campground. You can extend your run along the Lewis Hollow Trail or you can turn around here to make your way back to the parking lot. Remember that you have to run up the hill you just descended so be sure to save some energy for the return trip.
