The Cherokee National Forest is your destination for outdoor recreation. Enjoy a scenic drive through the mountains, the pursuit of wildlife, the thrill of whitewater, a night under the stars, or solitude on a backcountry trail.
Begin planning your visit by selecting "Recreation" in the left menu.
TRACK Trail is part of the Kids in Parks program to promote children’s health by increasing physical activities. The Chilhowee TRACK Trail is a combination of the McKamy Lake Trail (0.6 miles) and the Forest Walk (0.4 miles), making a one-mile figure-eight trail that leads visitors around the site’s scenic lake and through native forest habitats.
Everyone is welcome to visit the Cherokee National Forest to enjoy the clear, clean waters and view the abundant aquatic animals. Individuals and non-commercial groups may go to any stream to snorkel. Groups wanting an organized snorkeling experience led by knowledgeable guides with lifeguards present should contact the Forest.
