Tri Cities and Beyond: Hiking Rattlesnack Ridge in Unicoi Tennessee

Hiking Rattlesnack Ridge in Unicoi Tennessee

We hiked Rattlesnake Ridge in Rock Creek -Cherokee National Forest, Unicoi, Tennessee today.  What a hike that was.  7 miles round trip (not counting the mile into the trail) and the way up was exactly that, UP.  It was really fun..and hot.  Here is what we encountered about half way in... Register here! Okay, never seen this before, I was a tad bit freaked out.  We registered.  The path forward was a a tree covered canopy and I swear I heard bears the rest of the way through the hike!!  Actually, on the way back down, we think we did hear one, than it sounded like he pulled down a tree.  (The tree came down)!  My pace really picked up! The hike was beautiful.  I have hiked Rock Creek Falls before, but this was the first time hiking Rattlesnack Ridge.

Northeast Tennessee is such a great place to adventure!

Having rattlesnake in the name would have been enough to turn me away.  It is a very pretty area though.

Cindy- I like hiking but not crazy about snakes and bears.  Looks like a great way to get outdoors and take part in life!
