As you begin to get out and explore the Smokies during your stay, keep in mind that all but two hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National park are off limits to dogs. Dogs are welcomed at campgrounds, picnic areas and along roadsides as well as the following two walking trails:

Gatlinburg Trail

This 1.9 miles one-way trail from Sugarland Visitor Center welcomes both dogs and bicycles. Soak in beautiful views of the river, which at one point is crossed by a charming pedestrian footbridge, as well as foundations and chimneys of several old home sites that are visible along the trail. This relatively flat hike is fairly moderate and can be enjoyed by dogs and their owners alike. This trail is a great way to get out and explore the stunning Smoky Mountains with your pets!

Oconaluftee River Trail

The second trail to enjoy with your furry friend is the Oconaluftee River Trail, which is a 1.5 miles one-way moderate and fairly flat hike from the Oconaluftee Visitor Center to the outskirts of the city of Cherokee, NC. This beautiful trail offers stunning views of the Oconaluftee River and is frequented by joggers, walkers, and bicyclists.

Come stay in one of our pet friendly cabins in Gatlinburg this winter and enjoy quality time with your furry friend as well as some time relaxing and exploring in the Smokies. Spend some time in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park with your pets on the Gatlinburg Trail or the Oconaluftee River Trail together. Quality time in the Smokies with your best friend is all you need to unwind this time of year!
