This hike begins at the Smokemont campground and follows a relatively open old logging road up the Bradley Fork watershed. The valley offers open views this time of year as we ascend 4.1 miles up towards the trail to the Cabin Flats campsite 49. During the walk, we will pass a few small cascades and enjoy the beginnings of spring wildflowers. We will explore the campsite area before returning via the same route. Total hiking distance is 10.4 miles round trip, rated moderate. Meet at the trailhead at the back of the Smokemont campground at 9 am.
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.
