Loop Routes

Okay, since I described the high points of most of these trails already, I think I'm just going to list the trails and the lengths. The first trail listed will be the starting trail, and the last trail...well, I don't have to spell this out for you! All of these circuits are in the Joyce-Kilmer Slickrock Creek and Citico Creek areas in the Cherokee and Nanthahala National Forests in Tennessee and North Carolina, south of the Smoky Mountains National Park. I'm just giving this info for reference so you know which map to get. Basically, this page isn't as information intensive as my others, but it should give you some good ideas and places to start on good long day hikes or some short backpacking trips.

as many of the others. It's also a relaxing river circuit.
