We stopped in the middle of a stressful week to run away and hike for a few hours. We’re not really familiar with many hiking spots in this county, since there are fewer than when we were an easy drive from North Carolina and Virginia. Luckily for us, we have Appalachian Treks, one of the most useful blogs on the internet for anyone living in Northeast Tennessee.
Every time I go hiking, I wish I had my whole library of field guides and a whole day to examine a few inches at a time of these trails.
It took a little while on the Camp Creek trail to get past the logging road portion, which isn’t as fascinating, but the views just beyond are pretty perfect.
