Walker Sisters Home via Little Brier Gap Trail is a 3.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back 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.
Loved this trail! It is mainly gravel with a slight incline but it was peaceful with lots of pretty scenery. I was surprised how good the school and cabin still looked.
Nice trail, but not well enough marked.
Awesome family trail. Remember to take chalk if stopping by The Little Greenbrier School House so kids can leave a message on the chalkboard!
Started at small parking lot at the beginning of the gravel road. Fun hike. Pretty area. The hike is all on an old road mostly gravel. Steady uphill hike to the cabin.
Loves it! The old structures are great and a beautiful easy hike.
Neat place, well kept wide trail was easy for our 6 and 3 yr old girls to walk. Homeplace and cabin were in great shape.
We hiked this trail on a beautifully sunny day. It is mostly a graveled path with moderate incline. Once we made it to the walker sister's place we took time to have a picnic under a giant majestic oak tree. The trail didn't have breath taking panoramic views but I thought the quiet walk in the Forrest held a beauty of its own. I would definitely hike this trail again!
Easy trail with lots of history. took my grand daughter and she enjoyed very much. Started at Metcalf Bottoms, which takes you across a couple of foot bridges and another optional, but since water was low, we just waded through. Beautiful laurel tunnel. Little Greenbriar school house with adjacent cemetery, be sure and check the tombstones as it will make you appreciate the hardships the people endured. The Walker Sister's place is a pleasant place to pause for a while and reflect on life.
This is one of my favorite hikes in the GSMNP, I love the history of the Walker Sisters.
Starting from the Little Greenbrier Schoolhouse, it is a little over 2 miles back and forth on a easy wide trail. The four stars are for the object of the hike, the Walker Sister's Homestead that includes a cabin, corn crib, and springhouse. They are in very good condition along with the land at the homestead. Well worth the trip.
