      At first easy, the last mile climb to the Appalachian Trail is difficult. 4 miles; in and out.
      Logan Turnpike Trail- 1.9 miles (USFS). The Logan Turnpike Trail follows the historic Logan Turnpike, the first road to run south from Union County. It was operated by Major Francis Logan who built a home and tollgate at the lower trail head. The first mile of the trail is very scenic and follows Town Creek to its headwaters. The second mile climbs steeply to the AT at Tesnatee Gap. Parking is on a dirt road and dirt parking area. A dirt parking area is located at the north end of the trail at Tesnatee Gap on the AT. From Hwy 129. Turn onto Kellum Valley Road. After the Kellum Valley Road becomes dirt at approximately 1.2 miles, proceed straight ahead another 0.9 mile to where the road splits just before the ''Toll Gate'' house on the right. Continue on the narrow dirt lane past the house to the dirt parking area at the end of the road.
