Hike the Great Smoky Mountain National Park

There's something special about hiking the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Many people indeed think winter hikes sound too cold, but there are some things in the Smokys you can only see in the winter!

The colder scenery reveals many things that are usually hidden most of the year. Since the trees are bare this season, you can see much more of these woods while hiking. You get the feeling of walking through a vast open space. Also, you will have a better chance of seeing wildlife without leaves obscuring the vision during the winter.
