Mackey Mountain

Excellent views inside a BEAR sanctuary, hunting is illegal!!  Hike this area with caution, particularly during spring and fall seasons.  Elevation is 3,400 feet.  Take Curtis Creek Road, off US Hwy. 70 between Old Fort and Marion.  Drive beyond Curtis Creek Campground and parking area until you see Sugar Cove Road (approx. 9 miles).  Distance is 16 miles, moderate to difficult.
