Default Hurricane Creek Trail - WNC

Headed out on the Hurricane Creek trail here in WNC. Read reports of it on the internets so I did not expect much. It was basically an unmaintained Forest Service Road with a number of creek crossings. It took about 1 - 1.5 hours to complete. Only saw one other Jeep out there and a number of KTM dual sport bikes. There were a couple of mini challenges . But there was more fear of slipping off the trail in the narrow muddy sections more than anything.

This is the start of the trail off of I-40. We missed it on our first pass and had to double back. Its just a narrow fire road when passing through the pigeon river gorge.





First major water crossing.







Second major water crossing.



Broken down old bus.



Third major water crossing.



Poser shot while taking a break and eating lunch.



Fourth major water crossing.



Old stone wall.



Rubicon trail style rock obstacle.



End of the trail when it becomes a graded forest service road.



We ended our adventure at Max Patch. Good sunset views of the great smokey mountain national park.
