We did not realize how popular this area was. I had never been this time of year. We hiked 6 miles, and experienced the glorious tranquility of the forest. I guess there's enough for everyone! We only ran into a few people.

While visiting Gatlinburg we went on several day hikes an easy one from Gatlinburg to the Visitors Center and another not so easy up to Laurel Falls. You can pick up maps at the visitor center or at The Nantahala Outdoor Center.

It depends on the weather, the forecast is for early and lots of snow. Don't get your hopes really high.
