Bordering on the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg, TN is a vibrant town that attracts outdoor adventurers and naturalists alike year round.
Known as the “Treetop of the World,” Gatlinburg is an outdoorsman dream come true. Challenge yourself on more than 800-miles of trails through mountains and valleys. Enjoy a leisurely walk alongside fields of wildflowers to rocky, backcountry outcroppings. Follow the marked trailheads from the Great Smoky Mountains winding roads.
Venture out of your Gatlinburg hotel and drop your fishing line into any number of park streams teeming with brook trout. Favorite spots for visitors include Little River, Abrams Creek and Greenbrier. Hire a guide to show you more backcountry hiking, biking, fishing, and wildlife-watching options.
Adrenaline junkies are drawn to Gatlinburg’s whitewater rafting on Big Pigeon River; zip lining at 50-miles-per-hour through the park canopy; downhill or cross-country skiing through the Smokies wilderness; and horseback riding on a guided excursion where wild turkeys, deer and black bear can be seen in their natural environment
