6 Things to do in Smoky Mountains
As fall approaches, the weather starts to cool, the leaves start the change, and the Smoky Mountains become the place to visit.
Here are 6 things to do this fall in the Smoky Mountains
1. Go hiking.
As the leaves change colors, the view of the mountains is stunning. As fall approaches, the weather starts to cool and hiking becomes more pleasant than the middle of Tennessee summers.
Check out Twin Creeks Trail, Grotto Falls Trail, Rainbow Falls Trail, Porters Creek Trail, Ramsey Cascades, and more.
