Roots Rated takes a look at three must-do adventures in the Big South Fork wilderness.
Big South Fork is one of the most underrated wilderness areas near Knoxville and home to diverse wildlife, a pristine trail system, and great whitewater. But because it’s a somewhat lesser known outdoor destination, compared to the Smokies or Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness, you might not be sure where to start. Well, we’ve got you covered with these three Big South Fork adventures ranging from a moderate day trip hike to a week-long expedition into the depths of the park.
You’ll want to hit the link for the complete details, but we’ll let the cat out of the bag: 1.) Hike to Angel Falls Overlook, 2.) Stay at Charit Creek Lodge, 3.) Do the John Muir Trail.
