The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hiker’s paradise with over 800 miles of maintained trails ranging from short leg-stretchers to strenuous treks that may require backcountry camping. Hiking is not the only reason for visiting the Smokies! Car camping, fishing, picnicking, wildlife observing, and auto touring are all among some of the popular activities. Find out more information about the park by visiting a local welcome center or online at http://www.nps.gov/grsm
The Great Smoky National park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. However, some secondary roads, campgrounds, and other visitor facilities close in the winter months. Other roads may be temporary closed due to weather or construction. For detailed information about closures, please call (865) 436-1200 option 2.
