Nothing but a wonderful drive... enjoy the drive, the view, and the wildlife. The roadside creeks are beautiful, with a huge variety of rock formations and creek bed varieties

We used this trail for our runs as was gravel and maintained well for a 4 mile total trail. Easy area to park in at the visitor center and restrooms as well.

We visited the trial which lead to Cataract Falls. Very pretty. Bring umbrella as it rains during summer. Wear closed shoes since it gets muddy. If you have a walking stick its even better!

If you want to get a small sample of what you might find by getting out of your car and taking a walk in the woods, then this is for you. Not much to see here. I would suggest skipping it and saving your steps for better trails. I will now that I have been there and done that.

This is an area as you enter Gatlinburg...you can walk, visit, use gift shop and restrooms...hiking is great, but better up the mountain trails

Sugarlands Nature Trail is perfect for people who are not avid hikers and don't want something too strenuous. It would also be great for anyone with problems walking or in a wheelchair. It is a flat, totally paved path about a 1/2 mile that takes you back in the woods and right by a babbling brook. It took us maybe... More

Only a half mile (one way) and not steep at all. Plus, it has a small river running alongside. Great for kids!!! Could spend at least an hour or so just playing, climbing, strolling this trail. Easy trail to bring a stroller on, too! Highly recommend it.

I loved walking on the Nature Trail! The $1 booklet explains everything and guides you along the trail. The path is a little bumpy and narrow in spots. Be careful and Enjoy!
