Through The Great Smoky Mt., NC,TN

  • Prepare your trip ahead of time, The Smoky National Park can be dangerous during winter months. Many roads are close and cabins tended to be sold out fast. There are several good logging options, in North Caroline and in Tennessee, both will give you access to the park. Helpful information about the park: http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/maps.htm
  • I choose Tennessee just because Gatlinburg (town) offers a lot to do and see. There is also Pigeon Forge (sister town) and many RV campgrounds in both towns.
  • In Gatlinburg you have endless options: luxury cabins(with pools, spa, theater), economic cabins, higher cabins, cabins and hotels near the river, cabins with lots of rooms or few rooms and many more. Good information here: CabinsoftheSmokyMountains.com, http://www.vrbo.com, AmericanMountainRentals.com

  • Visit the visitor center, get safety tips from the rangers and a map. GPS can give you inaccurate information in the mountains.
  • Divide your map, in parts (days) so you won’t skip anything. There is a lot to do and see!!!
  • Always take snacks, and drinks with you.
  • Fill your car with gas before go.
  • Begin with the classic picture of the sign entrance (main road)
