It finally feels like fall around here! Folks in the Smokies are getting a charge out of waking up to a chilly morning and then heading out to make the most of a crisp, sunny autumn day. If you're going to be staying in one of our Tennessee cabin rentals in the next few weeks and are still planning your activities, you should know that days like this are made for hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Hiking inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park is probably one of the most popular outdoor activities among the park's nearly 10 million annual guests. And it's one of the easiest things to do, considering that there are more than 800 miles of maintained trails within the park's borders, covering portions of both Tennessee and North Carolina.
A lot of schools are already getting their fall breaks, and when you also consider the fact that the turning colors are making the Smoky Mountains more beautiful than ever, you can see why fall is one of the most popular times of year to visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
