This is a 5mi. hike from Gatlinburg and is a wonderful experience. You will see 3 different climate Zones on your way up and at the top you can spend the hight at a lodge
for about $70.
While in Gatlinburg, take the chance to walk down to the streams that flow alongside the parkway and enjoy the nature surrounding this place. Pictured here is my husband, Wayne enjoying the scenery.
During the Holidays the whole town is decorated so pretty. There are lights everywhere and it just gives you a wonderful feeling. They keep the lights up until February.
