  Mount Le Conte Lodge •  Smoky Mountains

Le Conte's location in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has spurred the creation of 5 trails that lead to the LeConte Lodge. In addition to these there are spur trails that lead to each of the individual peaks. There are scenic overlooks and peaceful woodlands settings and every trail offers its own unique sights along the way to the location of the lodge.


  Trails to Mount Le Conte Lodge

Alum Cave Bluff Trail: 4.9 miles up past Alum Cave Creek, Arch Rock, Alum Cave Bluff and views into Huggins Hell decorate the trail; it is a very scenic and probably th most frequently used trail of the five.


The Boulevard Trail is 5.4 miles in length and 8.0 miles from Newfound Gap. It begins on the crest of one of the Mountains 2.7 miles east of Newfound Gap on the Appalachian Trail. Bring your oxygen along, this trail never dips below 5,500 ft.




Bullhead Trail is 6.9 miles in length. It is also the least traveled trail that makes it's way up to Mont Le Conte Lodge. You will find this trail offers the most solitude and peace of all the five trails.


Rainbow Falls Trail is 6.6 miles in length. LeConte Creek runs alongside the trail until you come to Rainbow Falls. Rainbow falls has the highest drop of water in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.


Trillium Gap Trail 8.9 miles; The trail passes behind or "through" the Grotto Falls! Trillium Gap offers spring wildflowers and a short spur hike up to Brushy Mountain. It also offers the only horse trail on the mountain! The llama trains that supply the lodge use this trail as well. Starting the Trillium Gap Trail at the Trillium Gap parking lot shortens the climb by 2.4 miles making this a 6.5 mile trail.



Summary

The combined traffic of these 5 trails makes Mount Le Conte one of the most heavily hiked mountains in the park. The Alum Cave and Rainbow Falls trails in particular tend to become crowded with visitors seeking beautiful scenary just a couple of miles into the trails.
