Hiking Trails / Smoky Mountain National Park!
The national park system in the Smoky Mountains has over eight hundred miles of trails! Many of the trail heads are located near roadways making finding and access them fairly easy to do. The trails range in difficulty from easy to very difficult. Care should be taken to check the difficulty rating of a trail before setting out for the first time.
Trails cover the park from one end to the other. Many follow streams and lead to waterfalls. Some lead to historical places or well known peaks! Many of the trails are open year round, but again, checking before you set out is highly recommended! Please wear proper clothing, good hiking shoes and bring along some bottled water to stay hydrated!
