Great hike via Alum Cave Trail, and one of the best mountains I've climbed in the southeast. Loved it!

Up the Boulevard Trail, down the Alum Cave Trail. The hike affords spectacular views of the Great Smokies.

Nice training hike from Rainbow Fall's trailhead. Beautiful Sunny day until we arrived at the top, and then again shortly after we left the top!

Hiked up from Alum Cave Bluff with snow still falling, the top had 3+ feet, hiking = post-holing, great and majestic view though

CheesySciFiWanted to climb for years  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2010


My first try was on the Trillium Gap Trail in May 2006, when I was forced back by thunderstorms. The rangers told me that current road closures would add about 5 miles to the Trillium Gap hike. So I decided on the Alum Cave Trail.

Yesterday was a gorgeous day in the Smokies. It was a great hike to LeConte Lodge and then on to the true summit and Cliff Tops. I hope to stay at the Lodge sometime in the future.

chilkootMy daughter's first backpacking trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2010


Took my two kids, 8 and 11, up the Alum Cave Trail and spent the night at the shelter. Had the whole place to ourselves except for the deer that kept coming by and ripping up the grass around the shelter all night. My son has done overnights before, but this was my daughter's first and she really loved it. Enjoyed sunset from Cliff Top and sunrise (or lack thereof due to a cloud that settled in overnight) from the overlook on High Top.

Hiked the Alum Cave route. The snow made for a beautiful day even though there weren't a lot of views.

sprossedaMy training mountain for out west  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 1996


I have to date (4/18/14) been to the top of Mt LeConte 97 times. This involved over 1,340 miles and 350,400 feet vertical gain and descent. I have done most possible trail combinations, in all seasons and weather conditions, including 3 different kinds of 5,000+ ft vertical / 20 mile day hikes, and some bushwhack routes. This is one of my favorite southern mountains. I also use it for training before going out west to do mountaineering.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009


I wasn't aware that you need to hike in the afternoon to wait for the smoke in the Smokies to burn off, so now I'll have to try this one again. Nice hike, though, and the lodges near the top are pretty nice.

Alum Cave Trail is a gem of a hike in the Smokies . . . probably even better when the rhododendrons are blooming. Would love to stay at the lodge some time!

Alum Cave Bluff trail. Great hike to do. Had no view at top, but once we got on the bluffs, I broke out my kite and it flew to new heights!
