Hiking in the Smoky Mountains

Home to over 100 beautiful trails, hiking in the Smoky Mountains is by far one of the best ways to view the scenic spring flowers. With over 1,500 varieties to experience, you may want to be sure to bring a camera to capture some of the beauty! Please do keep in mind that we, along with national park staff, do request that visitors refrain from removing any of the flowers from the park as they are part of the natural ecosystem.

Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway

Don’t feel like hiking? Taking a relaxing ride on the Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway is the next best way to experience the pretty sights of spring in the Smokies. Taking guests from the heart of downtown Gatlinburg up to the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort, the Aerial Tramway takes riders above many beautiful mountain views.

Looking for a more secluded place to experience the beauty of the wildflowers in the Smokies? Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals invites families and guests to come see the pretty flowers from the privacy of one of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals.
