The Baker Hollow Trail is a 3 mile route one way, which follows along the eastern shoreline of one of the most picturesque lakes in east Tennessee: the Tellico Reservoir. Part of a larger system of trails, the East Lakeshore Trail, Baker Hollow is dominated by upland hardwoods and pines. History is plentiful along the Tellico Reservoir, as this area was once occupied by Cherokee Overhill villages and early settlers. This hike takes you to Mizell Bluff where the view to the north of the Cumberland Mountains will leave you wanting to explore the other 30 miles of trails in this corridor.
Both Little Cedar and Cedar Mountain hug the western shoreline of the Tennessee River/Nickajack Lake as the tail-end of Walden Ridge is broken up in the Tennessee River gorge and blends into the Sequatchie valley. The elevation gain and topography grant the Little Cedar Mountain Trail a dry side and a moist side; the wildlife and plants present reflect these subtle changes thus making the two loop trails a somewhat different experience as you hike within the parcel.
