Join us and explore a short section of the Cumberland Trail.  This 6 mile out and back hike traces the spine of Brady Mountain.  The route features unspoiled valley views of the Grassy Cove valley and an undulating ridgeline climb.  We will stop for lunch at a fabulous overlook offering views over Grassy Cove, an enclosed valley designated as a National Natural Landmark.   As the Knoxville News states “the view offers a snapshot of rural Tennessee that’s as pretty as you’re likely to find”.
