Tennessee

Description

In Tennessee, the Appalachian Trail reaches its highest point: the Clingmans Dome at 6643 feet (2025 m).

Most important trails are the Benton MacKaye Trail (288 miles in the Appalachians, shared with Georgia and North Carolina), the 165 mile Cumberland Trail along the western side of the Appalachians and the edge of the Cumberland Plateau, the 260 mile Sheltowee Trace Trail, partly in Kentucky.

Also, Tennessee hosts part of the Eastern Continental Trail.

The famous and busy Great Smoky Mountains National Park lies on the border with North Carolina. North and south lies the Cherokee National Forest.
