on Hemp Hill Road Trail

nice short hike, not good for climbing or bouldering. i think my 70 year old grandma could do this hike, but it was really pretty, so if you are looking for something short and not difficult, just to get out in the mountains- this is a really good hike for you

Smooth path uphill to the best view of the Smoky's I've seen yet

Beautiful views of the Parkway, great place for stargazing in the warmer months.

Up, up, up for the first half of the hike but it is on a gravel road that leads to a US Park Service facility used for their education or training needs. Once at the top where the facility is located there are options to hike a variety of trails from 1 to 4+ miles in a more wooded environment.

The best hike I've ever been on! So worth it!

Very beautiful hike along the creek. However there are a lot of rocks to walk on. Wear good shoes and maybe bring a walking stick.
