Trail Description

Bradley Fork Trail is a wooded hike with lots of streams, creeks, wildflowers, and trail crossings. The trail itself is actually a wide gravel road making for a relatively comfortable Smoky Mountains hike. The first four miles are a fairy easy steady incline, but the last bit of the hike rises steeply along Hughes Ridge.
