One of our more popular Trails Illustrated maps provides an increased scale of one of the most visited National Parks in the US and greater detail to the backcountry users and Appalachian Trail through-hikers.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a hiker’s paradise with over 800 miles of maintained trails ranging from short leg-stretchers to strenuous treks that may require backcountry camping. But hiking is not the only reason for visiting the Smokies. Car camping, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing and auto touring are popular activities.
