Millions of tourists and locals drive by this area annually without ever knowing what these mountains hold. This hike is rated moderate with steep sections. You will experience an off the beaten path experience with hidden Park secrets including waterfalls, homesites, and rock features. This tour travels into the rugged landscape, local mountaineers would refer to as “hells” due to the tangled trees and steep terrain found here. If your interested in off trail adventures and remote jewels of the Smokies that can't be found anywhere else in the park, then strap on your boots and get ready! Smoky Mountain Guides can allow you the opportunity to travel along the same trail systems as moonshine legends previously did. Check out legendary caves that were used to brew the illicit craft-moonshine. As we break for snacks and drinks, take in views of Mount LeConte (the 3rd highest peak in the Smokies) and Gatlinburg. Finally, show up at one of the most unique areas in the South East, Court House Rock, which bursts over 50 feet from the forest floor. This site is an uncommon one in the Smokies, more likely to be seen in the Rockies. Book your Court House Rock experience today!
