Description

Tinker's Dream starts at the Oconaluftee Village Trailhead and traverses the mountain where it ends at the intersection with Lazy Elk and Kate's Wave. The trail also connects with Uktena after about 0.2 miles and the start of Lazy Elk after a half mile. This trail climbs to the halfway point at the first Lazy Elk intersection and descends to its end through a snaked switchback berm run.
