Recreation

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hiker’s paradise, with over 800 miles of maintained trails ranging from short, leg-stretchers to strenuous treks, with a number of which accessible near the picnic area.

Hiking is not the only reason for visiting the Smokies: Fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing and auto touring are also popular activities.

Visitors can enjoy high-quality backcountry fishing in the cool waters of the countless streams and rivers that snake through the mountains, with trout available in abundance.

A one-way nature trail and scenic drive is accessible from the park, providing the type of views the Smokies are known for

Wildlife viewing is a popular pastime, and with around 1,500 bears living in the park, most visitors come to the Smokies hoping to spot one. The park is a sanctuary for a magnificent array of animal and plant life, all of which is protected for future generations to enjoy.
