Crosby TN Favorite Hike

It was back to Crosby TN again today for the Maddron Bald Trail.  This is a 6.6 mile hike with 1,400 feet in elevation gain in three miles.  That is about a 9% average grade.  The trail is considered moderately challenging and takes 3hrs 25 min to complete.  The big plus is the trail was in great shape.  The waterfall at the end was a great place for lunch.  We didn’t see anyone until we went back down the hill.  A tip, there is no entrance fee here however a paid parking tab is required.
