Ashlyn, a native of the area, was an amazing historical and ecological guide for our hike. We never felt rushed, she was full of woodland knowledge, and we truly enjoyed ourselves!

Choose to do the top of old smoky walk, The view from the highest point was breath taking! Although we all enjoyed the walk, it could have been for a shorter time.

There are 900 miles of trails in the Smokies. I'd recommend checking with the Park service Visitors Center when you get here.
