Gatlinburg, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 29, 2014
Gatlinburg cabin company, Stony Brook Cabins, recently revealed everything guests need to know when Smoky Mountain hiking for the first time.
Hiking in the Smoky Mountains can be one of the most enjoyable experiences travelers to the area can have; however, for beginners this outdoor activity may seem a little intimidating. Stony Brook Cabins’ Smoky Mountain hiking guide relieves this stress by teaching hikers how to pick the right trail, what to bring when hiking, and how to dress.
“At Stony Brook Cabins, we believe all of our guests should be able to enjoy the scenic and relaxing experience that Smoky Mountain hiking can bring,” said a spokesperson for the Gatlinburg cabin company. “The purpose of our hiking guide was to encourage guests of all experience levels to spend time in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park during their visit.”
There are over 100 different Smoky Mountain hiking trails. These trails range from just a short half-mile walk to nearly 20 miles round trip. The difficulty ratings also range from very easy to very strenuous, depending on the trail.
According to Stony Brook Cabins, beginner Smoky Mountain hikers should focus on shorter trails like the Cosby Nature Trail, Sugarland Valley Trail and Metcalf Bottoms Trail.
All of these trails have a relatively low elevation gain, but they still allow guests to witness much of the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
