Appalachian Mountain Hike In Northeast Tennessee: The Beauty Spot
It’s no secret around here that I love these beautiful Appalachian mountains that I call home! When the opportunity to partner Northeast Tennessee Tourism was presented to me, I was super excited! I know this is a travel blog, but let’s be honest, we can’t travel all the time. Though, I’m pretty well giving it my best shot! That doesn’t mean, however, I have to stay behind this computer screen all the time. We love to get out on the weekends either as a family or sometimes, as I shared in Hiking Backbone Rock In Shady Valley, Tennessee, we like to take outdoor dates.
Now, that my first article is published on their site, I’m even more excited! This is such a perfect opportunity for my family to enjoy our area even more and share it with all of you! Travel is my passion, but sometimes traveling just a few miles down the road is all I need to have a WOW Travel experience.
My first assignment for the Northeast Tennessee Tourism site was in Erwin, TN. Read about it here! While we were over in Erwin, my family couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take the very easy drive and short hike to the Beauty Spot. When you see these great photographs my husband took with his new Sony a6300 (his new hobby might I add), you will have no difficulty seeing why it’s aptly named The Beauty Spot.
The Appalachian Trail
The Beauty Spot is actually a bald located where the Appalachian trail passes over the Unaka Mountain range in Unicoi, Tennessee. It’s elevation is 4400 feet and it’s views are breathtaking. On our visit the bees and the butterflies were particularly active and we enjoyed observing them up close.
If you make it over to my neck of the woods, and are looking for a great and fairly accessible mountain hike, consider visiting the Beauty Spot in.

No Wonder They Call It The Beauty Spot!
It’s pretty common to run across some through hikers and backpackers at this spot, in fact, there is a great campfire pit located on the nob offering an overnighter the perfect place to set up their tent.
We always enjoy talking with through hikers on the Appalachian Trail when we section hike. It is my dream one day to follow in their footsteps and hike the entire Appalachian Trail.
Here is an article on one-man tents for backpackers if you are closer to this realization than I am.
