This was one of the two trails in the park that allow dogs. It was about two miles into Gatlinburg. It was fairly flat and along a river, with nice views. You do have to walk down a road for a bit, which is confusing,...More

A flat, paved 1/2 mile trail right near the sugarland entrance. Good for people with wheel chairs. Nice views of the river.

We hiked the OLD sugarland trail, that is NOT paved. We did about 4 miles of it, believe it is 10 if you do the whole thing. The first mile goes all along the water, beautiful views. Trail was rated as 'moderate'. Highly recommend.

This is a easy hike only a half mile away from Sugarlands Visitor Center down 441. This is I believe one of the only ADA approved and paved trails in the park. It is short and while it doesn't have any major views or sites,...More

Good day. If you find yourself in the Great Smoky Mountains and at the Sugarlands welcome center, might I suggest that you carve out a few minutes and walk the Sugarlands nature trail. It starts right at the visitors center and it would be classed...More
