Leading into the Big Frog Wilderness of the Cherokee National Forest, Big Frog Road is an unmaintained trail guiding users in over 1,000 feet of elevation gain nearly to the top of Chestnut Mountain. This is a great trail to access many hiking opportunities that are offered in the area, including the impressive Hemp Top Trail with a 2,000-foot elevation gain to the top of Big Frog Mountain at over 4,000 feet! Although nothing technically difficult, it is worth noting that there are scattered rocky patches requiring drivers' attention. There are a few quaint camping options along this trail as well, and you will likely encounter fewer people than the more popular trails nearby.
