Upper Tremont is a peaceful spot, somehow overlooked by so many GSMNP visitors. Just off of Little River Road this area is quiet as it travels beside the water. Never any traffic. The numerous watercourses and small pools are always inviting during hot summer days....More

A good place to get away from the crowds. The road is unpaved but was in good condition when we were there. We saw a few fly fishermen along the way, but not much traffic at all.
