Brushy Mountain & Porter Creek with 2 options (Difficult Level)

  • Porters Creek Trailhead

    GSMNP - Greenbrier Entrance , Gatlinburg, TN (map)

    35.697166 -83.387550

  • Red Jeep Wrangler
  • This is a two option hike.  Nothing really exciting about this hike other than you can hike out to Brushy Mountain without getting stung by yellow jackets due to the time of year.  Depending on the weather you may get to see some views from Brushy Mountain.

    Option #1 is an in and out hike to Brushy Mountain for about 11.5 miles.   


    Option #2 includes Option #1 and adding and in and out to Porter's Creek for 17 miles.  Nothing really exciting about Porters Creek this time of year, except you get to see it in the winter when most people never see it. It gets most of its use in the spring.

    Bring your poles, water, hydration snacks, and lunch.  Dress for the weather.
