Hike at the Great Smoky Mountains. this spring

There is no better way to explore and see all the beauty that nature has to offer this spring  than going on a hike at the Great Smoky Mountains.

Before you set off on your adventure, make sure your family is prepared for your hike.  Proper hiking shoes are a must, and you may also want to carry along a backpack with a jacket, some water, and snacks depending on how long you plan to be out. If you are new to hiking, pace yourself.

Here are some of the most popular destination hikes in the park:

One of the most daunting tasks facing hikers is choosing a trail. Start by deciding on what you would like to see. Waterfalls? Old-growth forests? Endless views? Then decide how far you would like to hike. If you haven’t hiked much recently, be conservative. Five miles roundtrip is a good maximum distance for novices.
