Hunkerson Gap Trail

  The Hunkersons Gap trail is not the most difficult trail to hike yet of offers many terrain challenges along the way.  I have completed this hike several times yet each trip offers a whole new adventure.  I have encountered bear, deer, turkeys, and snakes on this trail. So, hit the trail, who knows maybe you will be the one who uncovers old man Hunkersons gold!!
