Ivy Trail

  ivy trail turned out to be a waste of time, it's a road not a trail, don't bother
Says terry nordwark

Hiking trails are all over the Great Smoky Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains. Spending too much time indoors got you down? No problem, Ivy Trail in Monroe County, Tennessee is just what you need. Ivy Trail is a long drive away from Athens but many people like to hike here to be close to nature.
If you
    are in Tennessee during hiking season you have to go hiking. A trip to Ivy Trail wouldn’t be complete without a visit to nearby Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park, and get your pulse rate up on the tremendous whitewater of Coker
Creek. And that's not all the things to do here in the Great Smoky Mountains. Here at Ivy Trail there are plenty of people from Turtletown, and you can run the rapids of Conasauga Creek. Take a little visit to Edmunson Branch since you're here at Ivy Trail, and Tellico Plains Koa is a delightful campground nearby. Getting to Spurling Branch from Ivy Trail is trouble-free; you can stay the night at Gee Creek Campground. Any time is a fine time at Ivy Trail if  
you like the outdoors. If you want to hit the beach, Parksville Beach is close at hand. Ivy Trail is a wet place that gets a great deal of precipitation. The month of March is the wettest with most of the rain; the driest month of the year is October.
