“The main ridge trail on the House Mountain Loop, connecting West Overlook Trail and Mountain Trail.”— Max Willner
On the western side of the Crest Trail is the West Overlook - providing a view of the Cumberland Mountains to the North and the Smokies to the South.
The Crest Trail continues eastward uphill until it dead-ends at the East Overlook. The East Overlook is considered the more spectacular view of the two, offering a view of the Clinch and Unaka Mountain Range. Hikers will proceed to backtrack from the East Overlook back to the trail junction at Crest Trail and Mountain Trail.
