Description

Starting at the lakeside trail you follow the lake around to Lake Road taking that to the fire tower trail. Once at the fire tower you'll head West along the Indian pipes trail over Holston River Mountain. Heading south through a valley past a few abandoned old cabins you'll eventually take crossing ridges trail over to cherry knob trail. BE WARNED there are a few EXTREMELY steep climbs on this part. Afterwards you'll descend cherry knob trail meeting up with lakeside trail, now on the opposite side of the lake. You'll follow this across the damn, eventually ending where you began.
