Elkmont Nature Trail is a 0.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Gatlinburg, Tennessee that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This is a great intro or family hike. I hiked this with my wife and three kids, the youngest being 3. It's beautiful. Be sure to pick up a guide to get additional information at each signpost.
The abandoned buildings make this trail (and off trail) fun to explore; watch for snakes. We encountered a fair few.
