Great place to cool off

There is a small swimming hole close to Gatlinburg off of this path. It is a great place to cool off and watch small trout and other fish. Take a cooler and enjoy nature!

This walkway is paved and short in distance. There are markers explaining the history of the land around the trail and the types of trees there. There are a few stone chimneys along the way still standing over one hundred years. There's also a stream running alongside the trail you can actually dip your toes in. It was very refreshing.

This is a great area especially for the elderly or handicapped as the circular trail is paved. It is easy to step off the trail and be creek-side within a minute. Lovely and somewhat private spot for a picnic by the creek.

It's a nice little trail perfect for folks that love nature. Brought our hounds with us and they enjoyed wading in the stream.

Great Short hike from Gatlinburg with free parking at the trail head in Gatlinburg. Bring your pet dogs seems to be welcome. Easy Shaded hike that connect the the Sugarlands Nature trail near the visitor's center.

Forget the T-shirt shops and all the shopping while in Tenn. Get the family together and go see the sights. The views are beautiful and breath taking. I recommend going and taking your time. I will go back.

This trail is easy and has lots of interactive information about the plants and animals that live in the surrounding area. It was great for smaller children to hike on their own and commune with nature.

If you're short on time, do this easy hike near the Sugarlands Visitor's Center. You walk along the creek for a bit and there is a waterfall at the end. Perfect for all ages.

I walked this a nice sunny afternoon this week, then went back in the drizzle another day. The walk through the woods, by the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River was beautiful and informative. There was a young lady there in a wheelchair, so it is accessable for those who are handicapped. The trail is paved with plenty of... More

My husband and I wanted a quiet, easy walk on a overcast day that was forecasting rain so we decided to check this out. It was beautiful and educational. Fully paved so it wouls be a good short trail for people of all ages and needs.
