“A great 10-ish mile loop in Deep Creek Campground in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.”— Matt Kirby
Begin by leaving the Deep Creek Trail parking lot; you'll cross a stone bridge and head up a forest service gravel road for 1 mile. The Indian Creek Motor Trailhead will be on your left; pass through forest service gate and begin the climb up toward the junction with Thomas Divide Trail (4 miles).
Once your crest the hill, you'll head toward Deep Plow Gap Trail (1.8 miles). Stay on Indian Creek Trail heading toward Deep Creek Trailhead for 3.7 miles. Follow signs to the Deep Creek Trailhead/Parking Lot to finish out the loop.
