I have a new route for Norris. As opposed to starting along the river, we parked in the town of Norris, by Archer's Market. It a cool way to come into the woods; leaving town and into the hollows. Other benefits from starting there include keeping the dogs off the road more, and being close to a killer beer store.
Norris->Eagle->Spooky->Highpoint->White Pine->High Point->Ridgecrest->Eagle->Archer's Market
