The Hiking Trail Hiding In Tennessee That Will Transport You To Another World

Honey Creek Loop meanders its way through Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, coming in at almost six hiking miles. This gorgeous trail is not for the faint of heart, though. You’ll be traversing rugged terrain and thickly forested undergrowth with limited signs and direction, so prepare yourself for this beast of an adventure. This is where you can come to be truly one with nature, where you can enjoy the beauty of Tennessee’s green underbelly, beyond the lights of our iconic cities.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
