Directions: I've had to take down the directions. The rock itself and most of the hike is on public property but to get there you have to cross over private property.

Today I discovered a wonderful destination in Carter County called High Rock. Now this is not to be confused with High Rocks in Unicoi County. Both are similar hikes (steady inclines) which lead to rock formations offering terrific views. But the view from the one in Unicoi County is obscured by trees during the summer, so it is best visited from late fall to early spring. High Rock (in Carter County) offers year-round panoramic views of nearly all of east Tennessee -- Roan, Unaka, Stone, Buffalo, and Holston Mountains and everywhere in between. The above photo shows both Roan Mountain (left, covered with clouds) and Unaka Mountain (upper right).
