Mackey Mountain Trail
At A Glance
8 mi one-way
Difficulty Rating: 8
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: Orange (sparse)
Trail Number: 216
The infamous Mackey Mountain trail starts near the top of Curtis Creek Road and heads southeast. This trail begins well enough, winding along and across the ridgeline past Sams Knob and over to Narrows Knob. It's a well-graded path in most places, but (as of 2016) the blazes and the trail fade away more and more the farther you go. The trail becomes all but indistinct before essentially petering out in several directions once reaching Mackey Mountain itself.
There are no maintained connections toward the southern end of Mackey Mountain trial, but there are several potential connections you could make back east down to Mackey Creek, south to Stillhouse Branch, or north to Locust Creek via old, abandoned routes. This should all be considered wilderness travel past Narrows Knob.
