Up and down and all around, Tsali Right Loop has it all.

Description

The Tsali Right Loop is very similar to the Left Loop - expect some rocky sections and a few steeper climbs. Overall, there is less shoreline running and more steeper side slope sections than the Tsali Left Loop.

The trail starts with a slight downhill to the east and drops onto one of the many Lake Fontana peninsulas. The descent quickly transitions to a climb, gradual at first and then steep for the duration. Enjoy a slight respite before the second big climb starts after Brattles Branch Creek.

After topping out, there is an easy run towards an overlook. Stay right at the forks in the trail to get to the Windy Point Overlook and enjoy more great views. The overlook loop is only about a mile. On the way back, stay right to continue on Tsali Right Loop and then right again at the intersection with Right Loop Connector 2.

From here, contour on inland trail to the end of Tsali Right Loop to an intersection with Tsali Left Loop and County Line Road.
