This challenging trail begins at Newfound Gap in Smoky Mountain National Park. The trail traverses some of the most spectacular views in the Smokies. The steady climb over the course of the first two miles will lead to distant observation of the North Carolina Smokies. Many hikers rate the next two miles as some of the most spectacular in the Smokies. This is an in and out hike. The view from the Bunion makes all the effort.
