A beautiful butt-kicker of a hike with beautiful views at the top, and usually few people.

HikingOver grown

Hike was ok, as others mentioned, last bit of a climb doesn’t seem factored into the elevation gain and there’s a lot of tree coverage of the view but the log bridges are cool! We also took the nature trail back to our car rather than fully do this out and back. Liked the extra diversity from doing that addition.

HikingGreat!

Definitely recommend this activity on a Wednesday or Saturday. Fun for all ages. We rode the entire lope and stopped along the way to explore the primitive sites. We were amazed at how well the grounds of these historical sites were maintained. We saw a bear, deer and bats. The bats were in the Tipton cabin but they didn’t bother you. I never knew they were so furry. The black bear we saw was 40 feet off the road but didn’t seem to mind us passing by. He did, however create quite a bike jam. Recommend taking at least a half a day if not a full day to enjoy and take in the scenery.

We tried to do this trail today, but it’s currently closed Monday through Thursday to construction. I believe through mid November. You can take the trail up to the Grotto Falls, but that’s as far as you can go. We ended up going the Rainbow Falls trail.

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was our first hike in SMNP. We loved it! It was tiring. It’s rocky which makes the return trip back down challenging, especially when we were tired from the climb. The view on Rocky Top was great. We enjoyed the Anthony Creek trail which runs along the river and crosses it several times.

Beautiful trail. River and falls were so lovely. Enjoyed a nice sandwich on a rock while listening to the water flow by.

These are some great trails. Beautiful forest views and, on Bote Mt. trail, views of nearby ridges. The cemetary near the West Prong trailhead is a neat historical relic.

This was a fun trail. The views from lonesome pine and the areas surrounding it were worth the price of the hike! It was steep at times and there were sections the trail was a little washed out but not bad overall!

Great!

We completed this hike as part of an adventure up to Clingmans Dome! The hike was tough through here at times. Once we got up to the Lonesome Pine overlook and saw the views it gave us new energy to continue. Hiking along the ridge was really cool as well!! Lonesome pine was a perfect lunch stop!

BackpackingGreat!

As seen in my recording we did this trail a little differently, adding a few miles to avoid the road walk. Minus the top, we saw maybe 5 people the whole time. Here’s our breakdown: Day 1: we parked a deep creek (no issues parking for 3 days) and departed.... the first 2 miles were tough.. we didn’t think we’d make it all the way with the uphill climb but once we hit the Lone Pine overlook and saw the amazing views, it gave us strength. The next few miles along the ride were awesome!! We then headed back down to the creek. Instead of stopping at site 61, we trekked to 64. We did this portion of the hike in Crocs due to a lot of stream crossings varying from ankle to knee deep. The campsite at 64 was awesome. Bear cables, picnic tables, and a great stream that I laid in to cool off and clean off after a long day.... We set up the hammocks and slept well until the bands of a hurricane came through... we got out of the hammocks and threw the old not water proof tarp over a picnic table and crowed under there in our bags for the next few hours... it rained for 14 hrs straight. Day 2: soaked we got up and traversed the soaked terrain. Between blisters and lack of sleep, it was hard. We climbed and climbed until we finally reached Andrews Bald. Those were some incredible views. The final ascent to Clingmans was tough, and we finally limped our way there to see a ton of people dressed up all fancy for their photos and whatnot... exhausted and running out of daylight, we flagged down a park ranger who let us jump in his pickup bed and took us a mile from the shelter. We got to the Mt. Colllins shelter which was like a 5* hotel!! We slept great that night and had a hot meal! Day 3: The first 8 miles or so were an easy downhill climb... we were making great time and thinking about a hot shower and steak dinner... the optimism ended when we hit the deep creek trail. Between washed out paths, large downed trees that took up to 15 minutes to cross, and more creek crossings, it took forever.... we finally hit a more maintained area and pushed forward. The final uphill segment nearly killed us but we survived! We finally limped backed to the truck, shed a tear of joy, and despite the misery, began to plan our next hike!!

Definitely a difficult hike and longer than noted on AllTrails! Bring LOTS of water! We had to turn back at Spence Field and return to the Anthony Creek Trailhead. My app clocked us at 12.1 miles despite not making it all the way to Rocky Top.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Nice hike. It was shady the whole way. The ascent for the first half was a good moderate workout. I’m glad I brought my hiking pole for the way down! There is only one good overlook and it’s in the first 1/3 of the hike, so make sure you take advantage of it going up and on the way down! :)
