21 Nov Towstring and Twin Creeks Trails
These two trails are similar in that they are short easy walks and very accessible. The Tow String trail is near the North Carolina park entrance at Hwy 441 and the Twin Creeks trail only a few miles from the Tennessee park entrance at Hwy 441. Both trails are a couple of miles long. If attempting to hike the “map” of the Smokies, both trails are easily overlooked. So was the case with me. I ran these last 2 trails to finish up my 900 miler qualification.
Well, once again, I returned home only to discover that I had overlooked yet another trail. I will need to return one day to hike the Oconaluftee River trail. This 2 miler starts at the Oconaluftee visitor center not far from one end of the Tow String trail.
