Hiking in Green River Game Lands
Distance from motel
Bear Branch Descent! It offers up a fantastic downhill, and can be accessed from Long View Road or Rock Hop / Bradley Branch Trails.
LOCAL SECRET (Shh!)
In spite of its ~18,000 acres of wilderness, the Green River Gamelands is less frequented by hikers than its big brothers, Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, Nantahala National Forest, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In spite of this under-the-radar reputation, the 15+ mile trail system features stunning views, lung-busting climbs, tranquil campsites, and access to the granite cathedral that is the Green River Narrows.
