If you want to go on an adventure and have the best time of your life, then it is a great idea to head over to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. These mountains are located on the border of North Caroline and Tennessee. The Great Smoky Mountains are a part of the subrange of the Appalachian Mountains. They are popular for many reasons, such as the forest and all the unique species living here.
It is a wonderful place for you to have an experience of a lifetime. Here is a guide that can help you explore the Great Smoky Mountains.
The Smokies have wonderful trails where you can hike to your heart’s content and enjoy the fresh air on the top of the mountains. You can get all sorts of hikes on the Smokies as there are many natural features to adore. For instance, if you want to go on an easy hike, you can hike through the Great Smokies National Park, and if you want a harder hike, you can go into the mountains.
If you enjoy hikes early in the morning, then this is the place you need to be. You can hike in the Alum Cave Bluffs, Rainbow falls, and Chimney Tops.
The Smokies National Park is one of the best attractions in the Great Smoky Mountains. This national park stays beautiful throughout the year. You can visit whenever you want throughout the year; in the summers, the weather remains pleasant, and you can enjoy the park’s lush greenery.
When visiting the national park, it is a good idea to visit it first thing in the morning so you can beat the crowd and enjoy the park without many people. You will find visitor centers and well-maintained bathrooms in the park, so you can spend a lot of time here with your families and even set up a picnic.
If you are a fan of the waterfalls, then you can take a trip to the Sinks. These waterfalls are a marvel of nature, and you can unwind here. You can experience fresh air here with the beautiful sound of water falling down the Rocky Mountains. Nature lovers can spend hours here, adoring the waterfalls and the space’s ambiance.
You can sit on the boulders to gaze at the scenery and breathe in the fresh air. It is best if you avoid swimming in the waterfall as the water is very strong and you might injure yourself.
Do you want to have the best experience of the mountains? Get a ride on the Alpine Coaster. The coaster on the Great Smoky Mountains is the longest track in America and stretches over a mile. The track may take a good 7-8 minutes to complete, and the ride down is full of adrenaline. The feeling of air brushing against your skin while you take in the scenery around you is an amazing experience. The rush of speed and the mountains is a definite experience to have.
The Cades Cove is a wonderful stop if you want to relax for a bit. It is a valley where Southern Appalachian settlers settled for the first time. Here you may find cabins from the 19th century, along with other historical buildings that add to the beauty of the space. There is an 11-mile one-way road that surrounds the valley. You can drive around, and if you are lucky, you may even get a glance at wild animals such as black bears, deer, and even wild turkeys.
If you do not have a car of your own, you can also rent a bike from the Cades Cove Campground Store. It can be a great experience to bike through the valley with your friends or family and come across different animals.
If you come to the Smokies during winter, you can also enjoy many activities, such as snowboarding and skiing. You can choose from many ticket options and decide on a session that suits you. For instance, you can go for night sessions, and if you are a very big fan of snowboarding and skiing, you can also go for full-day sessions.
These activities include stops and indoor shops where you can sit down and charge before you go back to the ski slopes.
Fishing enthusiasts can also enjoy their visit to the Great Smoky Mountains, as there are over 2,900 miles of streams in the Smokies National Park. You can find lots of fish species such as rock bass, trout, and more. The best part is that there are many places for you to cast a line, and you can fish all year round.
One of the Smoky Mountains’ main attractions is the wildlife there. There is a large variety of wildlife here, and you can spot them behind the greenery.
If you are eager to spot a wild animal, you can head to Cataloochee and Cades Cove, as these areas are open, and you can easily spot the animals. Visitors can also take an auto tour to spot all the animals such as black bears, raccoons, woodchucks, and white-tailed deer.
