Address: Off Hwy 32 Cosby, TN

This out-of-the-way spot is a favorite among locals and longtime Smokies visitors for camping, picnicking, and hiking. Try the popular 2-mile Hen Wallow Falls day hike, or the 1.4 mile walk to Sutton Ridge Overlook for spectacular views. More ambitious hikers should plan for the 12-mile, fairly strenuous round-trip hike to the Mt. Cammerer Fire Tower via the Low Gap Trailhead; views from the 4,928-foot summit are stunning. The hikes originate from the Cosby picnic area.
