This hike will begin at the Greenbrier entrance to the park. We will start up the east side of the river, then go by the Price Cemetery and a Price home place on our way across the Copeland Divide to Big Copeland Creek. We will follow this creek up to the Old Settlers Trail passing numerous historic sites. We will then hike west on OST crossing back over the Copeland Divide to an area formerly called “Parton Town” where we will pickup another old road/trail going down the east side of the river back to beginning, passing more historic sites along the way. Hike around 9 miles, rated difficult.

Pre-registration is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.
