Vacation in Gatlinburg TN

Hikers looking out over a mountaintop boulder

If you are planning your summer vacation in Gatlinburg TN, you might want to take stock of your hiking gear. This is the time to do some shopping for a good pair of hiking boots and a light jacket that packs easily. Come prepared. If you forget anything, like a hat or a pair of binoculars, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park stores will get you ready for the hike in no time.

A book on day hikes in the Smokies would come in handy, too. Internet searches are overrated. A little book guide you can pack in your rucksack is so useful. You can choose hiking trails based on terrain, level of difficulty, duration, and accessibility. If you bring a furry friend along, please be aware that there are only two trails where pets are allowed: the Gatlinburg Trail and the Oconaluftee River Trail.
