Rocky Top is a rare offroad trail within the Cherokee National Forest of Tennessee. Long stretches of broken rock exposed to midday sun will surely delight anyone used to the mud or gravel roads in darkly shaded hollows that make up most of the trails in the area. As you ascend, and hear the rocks crunch under the tires, the foliage parts, giving you views of the misty-looking Blue Ridge Mountains. Further adding to the rareness factor, continue to Big Fill to give yourself over 9 miles and a full day of an authentic 4WD experience when you are done with this trail.
