A semi-wide track that is well traveled.
Open year round. There is a $5.00 daily parking fee or you can purchase a yearly pass at the visitor center.
The Sweetgum Trail is an easy loop hike. The trail links into several other routes that lead away from the visitor center on Glade Rd. This particular trail links into the Homestead Trail and White Trail for more adventures. Scenic views can be had along the lake, or visitors can stop at the lodge and take in the cabin or the foundry. Special events are held all year long at the lodge.
