Mount LeConte, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

4.9
#6 of 13 in Nature in Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Visit the third highest peak of the Great Smoky Mountains and trek along one of five trails at Mount LeConte. You'll earn a magnificent view from atop the peak, but mind that the ascent is tough, with trail lengths ranging from 7.9 km (4.9 mi) to 14.3 km (8.9 mi). Once you've completed the hike, have a meal and rest at the mountaintop lodge, renowned for its hospitality among visitors. Wear adequate footwear for the hike and prepare for sudden weather changes. Plan my Great Smoky Mountains National Park trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
