Nothing Better Than Hiking In The Smokies
This time of year, Gatlinburg experiences spring weather. Hiking in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park becomes easier with rising temperatures. If you are looking for Gatlinburg vacation packages, make sure you choose some with guided tours of the hiking trails.
You can benefit from nature walks even without a tour guide, but learning about the things you see on a trail can really enhance your experience. Just like in anything else, details make the difference between a good day and a great one.
You have another option, too: buying a trail guide book from one of the visitor centers. These little books are small enough to carry around in your day pack and contain a wealth of information.
One can plan a day hike or a two-hour hike based on the information in the book and then read all about the animals and vegetation one might encounter. A guide will say something and you will forget, but the book will be there for reference as long as you need it.
