This hike follows a little used trail beginning in the Greenbrier area East of Gatlinburg.  We will climb to Trillium Gap and then on to the summit of Brushy Mountain, just under 5000 feet elevation.  The bald atop Brushy Mountain affords great views of Gatlinburg and the surrounding mountains. There will be an opportunity to visit an historic farm site near the trail near the conclusion of the hike
