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.
