Alum Cave Bluff trail. Spent about an hour lounging on the cliff tops in the sunshine. Clear skies in all directions.

MarkDidierAnother Great Day at Myrtle Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2008


While the Chimney Tops may be my favorite place in the park, the Alum Cave Trail is my favorite hike in the park.The views on the way up to LeConte are just outstanding. It was a clear day with excellent views from Myrtle Point.

The last mountain on a 30 mile loop starting at the Chimney Tops trailhead. Incredible hike along the boulevard trail. This mountain is a true monarch in a land of majestic mountains.

Sam PageLong loop  Sucess!

Sam Page

I climbed this sometime during spring 1999 (I think). I recall doing a roughly 17-mile loop in a day and feeling tired of hiking by the end of it.

Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2007


Up and down the Alum Cave trail. The Lodge is a very romantic site for couples who enjoy backpacking and camping. Sunset was good; sunrise was cloudy, I mean "Smoky."

Great hike with my later to be wife (two years later)...this was apart of showing her many of the joys of hiking. BEAUTIFUL sunset on the hike from the summit.

Date Climbed: Jan 12, 2008


Arrived from Michigan at 3AM. Slept in car till 7:30AM. Left for summit right after using Rainbow Falls trail. Reached summit at 11:30. Descended at 12:30 via Bullhead Trail, reached car at 3:30PM. Arrived in Michigan 10 hours later. Great weekend. Weather was very clear, about 40'F or so at the summit. No snow, but traces of ice made the summit trails tricky.

eric-grizA fun hike via Alum Cave Bluffs Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 21, 2006


What a beautiful day I had on my hike up LeConte with my wife on her birthday. I don't think I will ever go back to Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a fall weekend, however.

My fifth time up LeConte, but the first time up via the Rainbow Falls trail/route. Marc, Brad and I got up this one in about 2:50. Great day, a lot less humid than the previous couple of days. A perfect hike other than the run-in with the vicious deer flies above the Falls.

EverydayExplorerGood work out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007


I went up the Rainbow Falls trail which is a very nice hike up but highly recommend going down the Bull Run trail because it is much easier on the knees. It is a good training hike though it is long and the down hike feels like it takes forever. I will do it again sometime but only because it is a hell of a work out.

Hiked Alum Bluff to Arch rock to summit. Nice vistas from Myrtle point - good place to stop and enjoy endless succession of mountain ridges. Snow on top. Came down via Boulevard, Jumpoff and AT to Newfound Gap for a taxing but killer day hike.

I loved this hike (alum cave). Though the summit was not truly picture of the week worthy, the views were outstanding, and wandering around the lodge was pretty cool.
