Hyatt Ridge and Enloe Creek 15.3 Rated EXTREME due to ascent on Hyatt:

Hyatt Ridge 1.8; Enloe Creek to Hughes Ridge O &B 7.2; Hyatt Ridge 1.7; to campsite 44 O&B 1.8; Beech Gap II 2.8 total 15.3

Nestled in one of the most scenic watersheds in the Smokies, Enloe
Creek is one of the park's hidden gems. While not easy to reach, Enloe
Creek will reward an angler who is willing to put his/her angling and
wading skills up against the stream's challenging conditions.

Access to the stream is troublesome and tiring, to say the least. There are
two access points, both of which are difficult. The first, and most practical, is coming in off of Straight Fork Road and up the Hyatt Ridge Trail. Once you make the grueling 1.9 mile ascent of the trail you will come to Enloe Creek Trail. This trail goes down .9 miles to campsite 47 and then traverses the top of a gorge for .7 miles until dropping down to cross over Enloe Creek. As previously mentioned, the trail up to Hyatt Ridge is difficult although relatively short. It's all easier down to the campsite as it's all downhill and from the campsite to Enloe Creek the short jaunt is just wide enough for one person and is littered with ups and downs, none of which are too difficult. One note of interest are the incredible views that you will have while on this section of the trail. While walking along the top of the gorge you will look out at the surrounding ridges and see amazing views of the Smokies.
