Hike in Great Smoky Mountains National Park
As America’s most visited National Park, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has something to offer everyone. Whether you’re interested in family-friendly hikes or long backpacking trips, the Smokies boast a variety of trails suitable for every skill level.
Spring is an exceptional season for wildflower viewing on your hikes through the Smokies. Often referred to as Wildflower National Park, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a world-renowned preserve of diverse wildflowers, with over 1,500 kinds of flowering plants found within the park, the most diverse plant population in all of North America.
If you are most interested in wildflower viewing, the popular Little River Trail is best hiked between mid-March and April. The relatively flat trail runs along an old gravel railroad bed parallel to the Little River. Along the trail, you will pass the remains of several old cabins formerly used as resort cottages in the early 1900s.
