What a week we’re having in the Smokies. Sunny, blue skies, mild temperatures are making this the ideal week to get out and make the most of this gorgeous Smoky Mountains scenery. Here are just a handful of ideas for making the most of nature’s cooperative mood.
• Go for a hike in the national park – There are hundreds of miles of trails and nature walks that will let you explore high mountain peaks, waterfalls, historic communities, wildflower regions and more.
• Go ziplining – There are several zipline vendors throughout the area that offer a variety of fast, high-flying adventures among the treetops and spanning vast mountain valleys.
• Go horseback riding – You’ll find a number of horseback riding stables in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and even the national park. So saddle up and hit the dusty trail and experience the scenery the old-school way.
And when you’re in the market for a rental cabin experience in the Smokies, don’t assume that Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg cabins are all that’s out there. At Volunteer Cabin Rentals, most of our properties are located in beautiful Wears Valley, Tennessee—close to all those other places but in the middle of some of the most beautiful landscapes in the area and bordering Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
