Coming from canton:
Take hwy 209 to Hot Springs, once you're thru the town turn onto hwy 25/70 leaving out towards Weaverville.
Approximately 2-3 miles later (up the steep a$$ hill) turn left onto a gravel road (Rich Mtn road). You'll see it just as you drive under the bridge for the Appalachin Trail).
Follow Rich Mtn road until it forks, you want to turn right at the fork (sign says Hurricane Gap----> this way) if you stay left at the fork it takes you to the fire tower.
From the fork its about 10-15 minutes on nice dirt road & you're looking for 422a on your left (its marked with a FS sign & does have a gate) this trail is only open from march 18th thru end of December.
***If you miss the 422a turn off you'll eventually come into the Paint Fork Creek campground in TN.

The trail is a full loop & brings you back out at the (fork) mentioned earlier.

Don't breed em' if you can't feed em'.
