The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Nature At Its Best

Enjoy the scenic mountain side as you drive through the Newfound Gap Road to enter the Smokies. The Great Smoky Mountains are gorgeous throughout the year.

The greens of spring and summer, shades of orange and red in the autumn, and the shimmering whites of the winter are all equally attractive. Pack a picnic and enjoy the day out on a perfect day at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Hike the original Appalachian Trail or enjoy the breathtaking wildflower walks. The National Park has 150 trails covering 800 miles. Venture into this International Biosphere Reserves to witness flora and fauna preserved since a very long period.
