Maybe the marquee hike in the Smoky Mountains. Mont Leconte, and the Alum Cave Trail is so beautiful. It's a must do while visiting this area. We had a picture perfect day on the mountain!

Started out in mist and light rain/fog but we decided to head up anyway and we're very glad we did! The trail is deep in rhododendron but does parallel a lovely stream with picturesque bridges and of course, the "cave". If we had brought lunches we would have traveled on to LeConte.

captainbuudaOne of the Smokies Best  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2009


This is a classic hike and might just be the best trail in the Smokies. I've been up this trail several times, each time a little bit further than the last. This trail really hits all the Smokies highlights: beautiful streams, interesting rock formations, diverse mountain flora, a little bit of exposure, and great high-up long-range views. I'll definitely hike this one again and again in the future.

Nice hike. Make sure to hike up so you arrive in the late afternoon. You'll have a better chance of the fog lifting for better views.

HotovenWonderfull Trail!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2009


Very nice trail. It has many great overlooks and a neat rock you can climb through at the begging of it. It also has cables to assist in hiking when rocks are wet, which is often.
