Great trail for a quick walk with the kids right outside Gatlinburg. Sidewalk the whole way, accessible for strollers or wheelchairs. Some interpretive signs along the walk.

This is a short, enjoyable trail not far from the sugarlands welcone center. It is a very nice blacktop trail which provides access for wheelchairs and the disabled. I would urge anyone who is not able to take the more demanding trails of the GSMNP give this a try.

Great for kids. We did this with our three under the age of 6 at the time plus our friends with three kids the same age. It's a nice intro for young kids. Flat & shaded the entire way & lots to look at.
