At 2,200 feet, Smokemont provides a moderate climate, characterized by mild winters and hot, humid summers. The peaceful trail begins near the Smokemont Campground, less than an hour’s drive from downtown Gatlinburg. The second phase kicked off on May 19 with the opening of Clingmans Dome, and more continues to reopen. However, if the weather has been mild enough to avoid icy roads and such at the 4000-5000 foot levels, driving the first 15 miles or so up the Blue Ridge might be nice. Special regulations apply in the park. But hiking is not the only reason for visiting the Smokies: Fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing and auto touring are also popular activities. Note that Elkmont is a popular camping area, so reservations are required if you want to turn your hike into an overnight. I have never hiked the AT west of Clingmans Dome, so I'd really like to hike this part of the park. Firewood Restriction: Only heat-treated firewood bundled in its original packing and bearing a certification seal from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) or a state department of agriculture may be brought into the park. Tip for Other Campers: Drive up to Clingmans Dome and take the.5 hike to the observation tower at the peak (very steep walk up but plenty of "benches" to take a rest on). Cataloochee would be quite do-able, although an all-day trip. More than 10 million visitors come into the park each year to enjoy its outdoor opportunities. • Fire Rings • Trails, Self-guided Situated in the stunning Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this campsite offers an ideal setting to enjoy the outdoors. • Comfort Station • Grills Year round and require a reservation of private businesses in communities around the....
