As a Knoxville-native, I’ve grown up right outside of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The mountains feel like home to me. I remember spending time with my family cooking out at one of the picnic areas and playing in the mountain river. As an adult, the mountains have continued to play an important part in my life. Kyle and I got married in Cades Cove and we have spent a lot of quality time on the trails together.
I’ve added a list below of the hikes I’ve completed and posted about, or you can read all my Great Smoky Mountain National Park posts here.
