Little River Trail, Elkmont : Hiking In The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Little River Trail, Elkmont

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is full of wonderful trails, and the Little River Trail, Elkmont is no exception. It’s a really easy trail, with a gradual incline, that follows the Little River. There are a handful of old cottages towards the entrance of the trail, which are pretty cool to walk around and check out. I would consider this more of a walking trail because it is so easy. It would also be a pretty quick trail to enjoy on a weekend morning.

It’s been a couple of years since I hiked this trail. (October 2014) It’s a perfect spot if you want to soak in all of the beauty in the mountains. It’s also really easy to set up a tripod by the river and get some nice landscape shots.

  1. Hi Hannah,
    I used to live in Sevierville from 2001-2007 and hiked most of these trails. Your pictures brought me to tears because I loved living there and I miss the beauty of the GSM! You are a talented photographer and I loved your pictures and your blog brought my old life there back to me. Lots of wonderful memories of TN! Thank you 😊
