It's Christmas Parade day in Greeneville. However, since the parade does not start until 2pm, I had the opportunity to go for a hike close to town today. I opted to hike the 3.7 mile long Greene Mountain Trail in Cherokee National Forest just outside the community of Camp Creek. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the hike today was the drive up Greene Mountain Road to the trailhead. It's very scenic country back there. I did make a short detour though, as the trailhead on Greene Mountain Road is difficult to find. There is no sign on the road, just a Carsonite post a few yards down the trail from the road.
The hike starts off with a pretty steep climb. The thick leaves littering the trail made for a slippery climb. Every now and then a view opened up through the trees.
I ate a snack and turned around to retrace my steps back to the car.
