Muddy Boots Hike Metcalf Bottom and Little Brier Trails aka Walker Sisters

Hike Description:  Come join us for the last hike of 2022!    The 3.6 mile out and back Little Brier Gap Trail hike, which is located in Metcalf Bottoms, is an easy trail that features historical buildings, occasional wildlife, and seasonal wildflowers. On Tuesdays, the park provides a docent/speaker knowledgeable in the local history of the Walker Sisters and their cabin, which can be visited on this hike. The relatively short distance combined with minimal elevation gain makes this a great option for novice hikers. A stop at the historic schoolhouse will provide a break plus some fascinating Eastern TN history.
