Here are some of the hikes and trails I enjoyed while visiting the incomparable Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Click on links below the preview pics for full pages and many more pictures and information.
A 1.2 mile hike I did during the 2014 peak leaf-peeping fall season. I don’t know what I liked more – the distant vistas, the colorful trees, or the destination falls.
This is a very short and easy trail (1/2 mi.) in back of the Sugarlands Visitors Center.
A short (1/2 mile), paved and fully accessible trail very close to the Sugarlands Visitors Center. These kind of trails are great when you don’t have as much time but still need a dose of nature therapy.
Tremont Outdoor Resort hosted this workshop and took us on the hillside trail next to the Y intersection past Townsend, the Chimneys Cove Hardwood Trail and Metcalf Bottoms. I’ll do separate pages for these trails soon, but the wildflowers were spectacular!
I love this place so much – it’s only a couple of miles from where I’m camped at Tremont Outdoor Resort and this trail was simply awesome!
