Known for its diverse plant and animal life, ancient mountains, and quality of remnant of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, it’s no wonder the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and surrounding areas are some of the most visited in America! Venture through Cade’s Cove’s beautiful nature trail while also discovering and learning about the historic buildings from the eighteenth and nineteenth century scattered throughout the park.
The Smokies are fantastic for the lovers of lush scenery! If hiking to the perfect scenic destination isn’t quite your mode of transportation, try an alternate route! Foxfire Mountain Zip Lines are located in Sevierville, just down the road from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Take in the view of the colorful mountain-scape as you fly down the mountain!
