Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hiker’s paradise offering over 800 miles of trails. But, hiking isn’t the only reason to visit the Smokies. Fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing and auto touring are other popular activities.
On the following page is a map of the entire park. Listed below are some of our favorite trails. Another great source of information before you set out to hike is the Sugarlands Visitor Center. They offer a wealth of information as well as a super exhibit about Park wildlife.
