dino61111Unusually clear from my understanding   Sucess!


Have driven up and over this range a couple of times. No one but the caretaker ranger and myself the last time through in April of 2013. Walked up Clingman's Dome, and got very clear views towards the west; on this day the mountains weren't very "smoky". Like a series of green ocean waves breaking in the distance.

We drove through this huge area, stopping from place to place and summiting various peaks. Very touristy, with lost of people, mostly visitors rather than hikers. But again, it is a National Park.

There's a reason, so many people visit the Smokies. It never disappoints! Hiked up Mt Leconte, and to Clingman's Dome. Also did some smaller hikes to waterfalls and such. Unfortunately Chimney Tops was closed while we were there. Will definitely go back soon....

Instead of finding every peak/trail I've done, just claiming the whole thing...done all but 60~ miles of trails there...plus some off trail routes. Smokies are my home!

rasgoatVery nice  Sucess!


I like this range, would like to explore it more although the lack of scrambling has me spending my time in other places.

Spent a week of so here hiking around various mountains, peering at rocks and running into various creatures. Even had a raccoon climb up me and sit on my head. What more can you ask for.

RhythmicMomGreat vacation!  Sucess!


This was another awesome kid-less vacation - camping in the national park and hiking several of the trails - I forget which we did. Spent about a week here. Would go back any time! I remember this was the place where I saw my first live bear among people - he was crossing a very popular parking lot - amazing to see him so close to humans!

Great hiking and camping in the park. The Mountains are very unique and I plan to visit many times in the future.

mlandau3This One Is Close To Home  Sucess!


Numerous hikes here. I always forget how rugged these mountains are. Although this is one of the most visited national parks, the crowds stay off most of the trails.

silversummitHiked there several times


Spent two plus weeks hiking in 1980 and then again years later. The balds are beautiful when the rhodos are in bloom but watch when bushwhacking,these bushes can smack you to smithereens!
