Wooded trail near Sugarlands Visitors Center, old cabin, frequent bear activity This is a self-guided nature trail located just behind the Sugarlands Visitor Center. This is a great hike for families with small children, people on a tight schedule or people not able to take more strenuous hikes. The trail is relatively flat, and leads you around a short loop, with views of the wooded forests famous in the Smoky Mountains. At the far end of the trail, there is a restored cabin that offers a view of the past history of the area. This is also a site of a virtual geocache. This trail is notorious for black bear activity, and is sometimes closed when the bears are frequenting the area.

A nice introductory trail that originates from the Sugarlands Visitor Center, and can be extended to Cataract Falls by taking a short detour on the Cove Mountain Trail.
