    This park is awesome, how can you not give it 5 stars?I’ve been there several times, including backpacking. Rangers are always helpful and knowledgeable. Concessions and store are great, roads are pretty smooth, it’s always a lot of fun, and you can see a wide range of flora, fauna and wildlife.

    We just returned from another trip to the Smokey Mountains National Park and absolutely loved it, again. The trails are a fantastic mix of scenic views, beautiful waterfalls, and quiet forests. The trails themselves are engineering masterpieces. My husband and I have long-distanced hiked in many places in North and South America and the trails in the Smokey Mountains are the best maintained we have ever seen. The Friends of the Smokies have done an amazing job building stone steps, bridges, water runoffs, cables, and other improvements that make the trails a pleasure to hike. The park is also extremely accessible making it easy to enter the Park, do a day hike, and then have dinner and live music in Gatlinburg afterward.

    Loved it! We spent a week in the area and were awed by the beauty of the mountains and the elk. We really liked Clingman’s Dome and hiking the Forney Ridge and Deep Creek trails. Tubing down Deep Creek was a lot of fun too.

    After traveling on the strip in Gatlinburg head into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Climb the seemingly ever growing mountains with plenty of places for beath taking photos. Look for wild life and you might be lucky enough to see a black bear, just a beautiful sight to see; I was privileged to see a momma bear with her cub walking just beneath the treeline and every car stopped to see these awesome wild animals walk out in eyeshot distance for a brief moment. Be sure to go to Clingmans dome to the top the mountains 6,643 feet and then you will know why its called the Smoky mountains. I love the temperature drop even on a hot and sunny day there is still a very crisp chill ontop of the mountain. If you dont time it right they will close this part of the park off due to the snow. There is a reason people come every year to the Smokies and keep coming back and thats because it is refreshing, visually stunning, and has a very unique unspeakable quality that leaves you at peace.

    An absolute must see in late October as the colors are awesome. Take the 8 mile, primitive & one-way, Parson’s Road out of Cades Cove for an experience to good to be true. You will likely see fox, turkey and deer along the dirt trail.
