From Hiwassee to Draper is a 4 mile, easy, slight uphill gradient with no designated parking area available at Hiwassee. The facilities at Draper are quite nice and the town is worth exploring. The rich history of the area is inspiring yet haunting and worthy of note. This section of trail features four bridges or trestles, all over one hundred feet in length. Your climb concludes when you gain the summit near Draper. Whether heading toward Lone Ash or Pulaski, it is down hill from here.
