Have you ever wanted to try your hand at hiking in the Smoky Mountains? According to American Mountain Rentals, with warmer weather just around the corner, this is the perfect time of year for beginners to take their first few steps toward an exciting outdoor adventure.
“Hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most thrilling adventures families can go on while visiting the area,” said a spokesperson for American Mountain Rentals. “With trails ranging in size from short treks to several miles, there really is a Smoky Mountain hiking trail for every experience level.”
To help novice adventurers navigate which trails are right for them, the Gatlinburg cabin company recently released their top four favorite Smoky Mountain hiking trails for beginners.
Topping the list of easy trails for the Gatlinburg cabin company is Porters Creek Trail. At a total of four miles and a gained elevation of 699 feet, this Smoky Mountain hiking trail is the perfect balance between a relaxing stroll and challenging exploration.
Located in the Greenbrier area, not only is this trail a great way for hikers to get a feel of what hiking in the Smoky Mountains is all about, it is always the perfect way for visitors to explore the natural beauty of the area. Along the Porters Creek Trail, guests will see remnants of an old farmstead, as well as 40-foot waterfall known as Fern Branch Falls.
Also on the list for American Mountain Rentals for Smoky Mountain hikes for beginners is Andrews Bald. A little shorter than the Porters Creek Trail, Andrews Bald is a total of 1.7 miles long with a gained elevation of 900 feet.
The benefits to this trail is that visitors have the perfect place to enjoy a picnic or catch their breath at one of the several scenic, open grassy areas along the route.
Finishing out the list for the top four Smoky Mountain hiking trails for beginners, American Mountain Rentals included the Sugarlands Valley Nature Trail and the Metcalf Bottoms Trail. At just under a mile each, both of these trails are a great way for visitors to get used to hiking without having to dedicate themselves to a lengthier trail.
