This trail starts in Crawfish Valley, crosses Bear Creek and climbs to the top of Brushy Mountain. It follows the ridge line of Brushy Mountain along the Tennessee Valley along the Tennessee Valley Divide for about 4 miles until it descends through Channel Rock Hollow back into the Crawfish Valley and returns to the parking lot. Terrain varies from the creek bottom land to the dry ridges. There are excellent opportunities to see wildlife along the trail due to this isolated location. The trail is blazed with orange diamond shape markers and is open to hikers, mountain bikers and horse back riders.
