Gregory Bald Hike
This has always been and probably always will be one of the finest hikes in the Park, offering scenic views of spring wildflowers, colorful flame azaleas in June, and sparkling frost in the winter. Nine miles round trip, located in Cades Cove.
Eleven mile scenic loop road. Beautiful sheltered valley with a mixture of forests, meadows, and an outdoor museum of pioneer life only a seven mile drive from Townsend. Scenic hikes such as Abrams Falls, picnicking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, and wildlife and bird watching.
An old logging road with beautiful trees and wildflowers running along the most picturesque stream only 15 minutes away from our Smoky Mountains bed and breakfast! Perfect pull-offs for streamside picnics and photography, and great for biking (paved 3 miles, unpaved 3 miles). Also offers a short hike (about 2 miles round trip), Spruce Flatt Falls, where long ago, Indian maidens must have bathed.
Little Greenbriar Home/School
Also nearby, home of the famous six Walker sisters, all born in the eighteenth century, who lived their entire lives in the Smokies. Given a lifetime lease, their legacy and folkways live on today.
Sugarlands Visitor Center
Park "info" headquarters with fabulous gift shop, wildlife displays, inspiring movie, and helpful advice. Twenty minutes away.
