The area is historically famous for the post-civil war vigilantes that met here in secret, in gladed areas called ‘balds’. It’s also famous for featuring prominently in the famous novel, Shepherd of the Hills. Highlights of the trail are the Dewey Bald, Boulder Bald, a portion of the "trail that is nobody knows how old," Sammy Lane's Lookout, The Signal Tree, and Little Pete's Cave.
