The Indian Grave Gap hiking trail connects Rich Mountain Road with Scott Mountain trail. To hike the Indian Grave Gap trail, travel the Cades Cove Loop to Rich Mountain Road. Turn right and take Rich Mountain Road to the Indian Grave Gap trailhead. Hike across the face of Rich Mountain as far as you care to go. It is about three and a half miles to the end of the trail when it runs into the Scott Mountain hiking trail.

The last part of this Cades Cove hiking trail is significant as part of the Rich Mountain Loop trail.

The beginning of the trail is an old road that is closed by a gate. There is parking space for probably two vehicles, one on the trail and one across Rich Mountain Road on the side of the road. Rich Mountain Road is a one-way gravel road out of Cades Cove.
