I don't go to Gatlinburg without driving the 10 mile loop. So much wildlife! They also close the roads to vehicles twice a week to give cyclists a chance to coast through.

The drive was great. We saw beautiful meadows with wild flowers and smoky mountains as backdrop. We also saw three bear cubs greasing the grass.

Sadly, some of the visitors are too selfish to give the cubs their space and move on from them, causing a huge 2 hour long traffic jam over a 1.5 miles part of the entire drive.

My wife & I hiked this trail April 7th. Having rheumatoid arthritis with some days better than others. It was a good day, this was a challenging hike & well worth it. Never give up!

Hiked this to Bote Mtn to AT to Spence Field and and on to Rocky Top. This trail specifically was absolutely gorgeous with all the green coming in. Fairly easy climb to Bote Mountain.

Muddy in places but some great views along the ridges! Several options to trails off this one or go all the way to AT!
