--Winnie the Pooh to Piglet
This fern-covered section of the Appalachian Trail in Unicoi County is a great place for a summer ramble.
Directions: From I-26 take the Erwin Main Street Exit (#36), at the end of the ramp turn east toward town and you will immediately arrive at a stop light. Turn right onto Rt. 107 and drive 1/2 mile, turn left at stop light onto Rock Creek Road (Rt. 395) -- continue on for 6.6 miles to TN/NC line (called Indian Grave Gap). The AT crosses at the top of this mountain gap, so if you find yourself heading downhill, you've gone too far. Park at Indian Grave Gap and head south on the AT a mile or so.
