This wild, rocky trail winds its way through mature oak-hickory forest, abundant plants and wildlife, and several scenic bluff overlooks of Percy Priest Lake. The first part of the hike follows the Volunteer Trail, but then it breaks off to form its own loop.

Plants found along the route include Trout Lily, Indian Pink and Rue Anemone. Keep an eye out for large oak trees, unique rock formations and sinkholes, and even some limestone glade habitat featuring Prickly Pear cactus. And listen/look for such birds as Pileated Woodpecker, Red-tailed Hawk, Osprey, and Common Loon.
