Overview

Point-to-point trail with parking at both end (near the Guntersville Dam or just outside the entrance to Honeycomb Campground. Trail is marked with white blazes. The trail winds along the Tennessee River/Guntersville Lake, so you have water views for the majority of the way.

Conditions: Mostly Dry, Some Mud, Fallen Trees: Lots of fallen trees and branches
Rated difficulty: Difficult
I don’t think this trail is used much as the fall leaves were thick on the trail making it difficult to pick out the trail at times. Luckily it is fairly well marked with white blazes. Also, there were lots of downed trees and branches making it challenging at times. This trail desperately could use a hand full of days of clearing.
