Great Smoky Mountains National Park Tours & Tickets
You don’t need to be a hiker to enjoy Smoky Mountain scenery on this Smokies Abandoned Resort History Walk. Join a guide for a tour of the area’s once-great resorts—your guide shares stories of Knoxville socialites who came to the resorts for sprees of moonshine-fueled revelry as you walk. Your tour ends near hiking trails so you can keep exploring on your own.
**Please note that all participants will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the tour. Please bring your own masks and hand sanitizer as we will have a limited supply for those who forget. You will also be asked to sign an acknowledgement of risks and report any illness within 14 days of tour.** Leave the driving to us as we take you to the top of the Smoky Mountains to enjoy the sea of mountains. Your guide will stop along the way for several photo stops as you learn about the human and natural history of the Smokies. Once at the top, we'll explore a small section of the famous Appalachian Trail before continuing our trek to visit the North Carolina side of the Park.

With 3100 miles of streams in the Smokies, there are thousands of beautiful stretches of white water. Adventure awaits as you explore the magic of pristine cascades and waterfalls on a little known trail. We'll warm up on a more popular trail, pausing to enjoy smaller cascades before turning onto a less traveled section of the Park. In the winter, we'll enjoy beautiful glimpses of the surrounding mountains, during the spring we'll pause to enjoy our famous wildflower display, summer brings refreshing swimming holes and in autumn the beauty of changing leaves. This hike is considered moderately adventurous as we gain elevation, climb over downed trees and get our feet wet.
