After a chilly winter, it’s time to welcome warm weather in the spring. What better way to welcome spring than to plan a trip to the Smoky Mountains? You’ll enjoy a vacation at our Smoky Mountain cabins since there’s so much to do during this time of year. Check out these top 3 ways to make the most of your stay at our Smoky Mountain cabins in the spring:

1. Spend Time Outside

There are plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy the weather in the spring. One of the best places to go to spend time outside is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park , a great place to spend your day if you’re looking for a bit of exercise and outdoor fun. There are plenty of trails in and around the park that range in difficulty, so regardless of how adventurous you’re feeling, there’s a springtime hike waiting for you. Check out these great spring hikes:

  • Gatlinburg Trail (easy) – 1.9 miles – As the only pet-friendly trail in the area, Gatlinburg Trail is perfect for the whole family, including your dog. This easy, relatively flat trail runs alongside the Little Pigeon River.
  • Little River Trail (moderate) – 4.9 miles – This trail features wildflowers and a cascading stream as it climbs a gentle grade along an old railroad bed.
  • Middle Prong Trail (strenuous) – 8.3 miles – Previously a railroad bed used by the Little River Railroad Company, this challenging trail is worth hike, as it features some of the best waterfall views in Gatlinburg.

2. Choose a Cabin with a Pool

Several of our cabins offer access to pools that are just a quick walk away. Some of them have indoor pools! No matter what kind of pool you have access to, your kids will have fun splashing around. With community pools, you’ll be able to enjoy being outside. A private indoor pool is great because you just have to share it with your family and friends you brought on your vacation. Spending time in the water is a great way to enjoy spring in the Smokies.

3. Attend Spring Events

Anakeesta in Gatlinburg is throwing its first annual Blooms and Tunes spring event. You can enjoy all kinds of live music, incredible sculptures, and delicious food. Another spring even you can attend is one of the infamous Pigeon Forge car shows. There are hundreds of vintage and classic cars lined up along the Parkway. There are plenty of fun things to enjoy in the spring!
