It’s not a coincidence that the adjective great is used to describe both the outdoors and the Smoky Mountains! Plan a stay in one of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals this spring and find out for yourself what makes both the outdoors and this majestic mountain range so great. Gatlinburg cabins offer you a great place to land and relax after exploring the great outdoors this spring! There are many ways to explore the Smokies this time of year, but here is a list of four of our favorites.
The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is home to more than 800 miles of hiking trails. Each trail offers its own unique beauty and vantage point to view the vast mountain range that will surround you. Hike to the top of trails such as Mt. Cammerer, Gregory Bald, Mt. LeConte, or Andrews Bald to enjoy panoramic views of the Smokies, or enjoy a hike on trails like Rainbow Falls, Abram Falls, Indian Creek and Toms Branch Falls, Lynn Camp Prong Cascades, or Mouse Creek Falls to visit a few of the many waterfalls housed in the Smoky Mountains.
Enjoy a peaceful view of the Great Smoky Mountains on the back of a well trained horse at Sugarland Riding Stables in the Smokies. The beautiful horseback riding trails inside the national park await you with an experienced guide that might lead you into a flock of wild turkeys, a herd of wild deer or even black bear climbing a tree. Horseback riding offers you a unique way to get up close and personal with nature during your stay.
Plan a trip during April 19-23 and enjoy the 66th Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage in the Smokies! The Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is an annual five-day event in the national park. Most programs are outdoors in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offering you one of the best ways to experience the mountains!
