Mt. Leconte is my favorite in the Smokies. Views are great!!!
This is a unique experience in the Great Smoky Mountains. Climbing to the summit of Mount LeConte and staying in the rustic cabins at the top is truly fanatastic! Book months in advance if you wish to stay in the cabins and be sure to watch the sun set from clifftops.

Nice hike. Started at 2AM, view of Gatlinburg, Sevierville and Pidgeon Forge at night were breathtaking. About 4400' of elevation gain. Took Trillium Gap Trail on descent. Ice climbed for a little while at 6220' of Trillium Gap Trial. Rainbow would be awesome climbing if it ever fully came in shape. 14 hours car to car, could have been slow since we had not slept.
