This loop hike begins at Elkmont, where we will leave the Cucumber Gap Trail to follow a long-abandoned CCC-era trail to meet the Miry Ridge Trail on Dripping Springs Mountain. Be prepared with long pants/long sleeves for two briery sections of the manway. We will return to Elkmont via the Miry Springs and Jakes Creek trails. Hike is 11.8 miles, rated moderately difficult.
