Curry Mountain

Curry Mountain is a relatively little known or little used trail near Metcalf Bottoms on Little River Road. If you're seeking solitude in the heart of the Smokies, this is an excellent choice.

If you plan on hiking this trail in the next few weeks or months, you should expect to see a lot of downed trees and downed rhododendron on the trail. Based on the fact that most of the fallen rhododendron still had green leaves on them, I would say it's likely they fell during the recent snowstorm.

As you near the end of the trail at the Meigs Mountain Trail junction, views of the surrounding mountains can be had through the trees:

Including Mt. LeConte in the far off distance:

I was on the Abram's Falls trail this morning. For one of the more popular trails I only ever saw one other person. It also had alot of downed trees. But excelent views of abrems creek through the trees.
