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.

Spring provides a weekly parade of wildflowers and flowering trees. In summer, walkers can seek out cool retreats among the spruce-fir forests and balds or follow splashy mountain streams to roaring falls and cascades.

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.

5 Free things to do on this spring in Pigion Forge

  1. Feed the ducks at Patriot Park. Take some duck food with you or buy some from the Old Mill General Store. The kids will love feeding them and watching them swim along in the Little Pigeon River. You may also find some ducks to watch along the Riverwalk Trail.
  2. Watch the fountain show at the Island. Take the family and sit in the rocking chairs alongside the fountains and watch the show. The fountain show comes to life about every half hour with a choreographed music and light show. You can also sit and listen to the free music outside Ole Smoky Distillery or even do a little window shopping in the more than 60 retail and specialty shops.
  3. Take a ride on the Fun Time Trolley. An all day pass is only $2.50 per person. It’s a good way to sit back and explore the town the fun way. You can get off at the different stops and explore or just hang out for a long ride.

  4. Have a picnic at one of the area parks. While the food may not be free, your family has to eat anyways so why not make it a fun adventure. Wears Farm City Park has several covered pavilions with picnic tables for your picnic pleasure. There is also a basketball court, a football field, and two playgrounds, so you can spend the afternoon playing in the park after your picnic. Patriot Park has plenty of open grass area if you would rather throw down a blanket for your picnic. Here you can throw around a frisbee or fly a kite when you are finished eating.
  5. Take a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Make it an adventure with the family to see who can find the most of different leaves, trees, flowers, or wildlife. Spend another day touring Cade’s Cove. You can grab a map for a small fee/donation at the entrance that will give you the history of the area. As you travel along the 11 mile loop, stop and check out the cabins, churches, and barns up close. Another free activity is to browse the natural history exhibits at Sugarlands Visitor Center. They also have a 20 minute video you can watch that offers information about the national park itself.

Why Pigeon Forge is the Perfect Getaway Any Time of the Year

Pigeon Forge is a beautiful and scenic location in the middle of the Smoky Mountains. The thing that makes that perfect for tourism is that the location is perfect year round. When you visit in the summer it is nice and cool and in the winter, it is the perfect place for some snow as well as some charm. Pigeon Forge was a relatively small and sleepy location until its most famous resident Dolly Parton opened Dollywood in her home town to bring people from all over the world to her backyard.
