Smith Mountain Trail

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Other Names

Cherokee National Forest, Coker Creek Zone, Kirkland Gap, West Fork Wolf Creek, Smith Mountain Trail #69

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the Cherokee National Forest, this trail is 4.5 miles long. Most of the trail is single track but eventually ties into some old forest service roads that are mostly wide and hard packed with some loose gravel.

While not a major riding destination, this is a good place to bring the dual sport for an easy day ride. The trail is open year-round but the best time to explore would be during the spring and fall months.
