The quiet of winter in the Smoky Mountains will bring out the adventure in you. Hushed and snowy trails invite exploration as the stillness magnifies even the smallest sounds of the forest. The cold morning air will clear our mind, and a cozy evening will warm your soul.
Winter is a good time to see deer, especially bucks, and, occasionally, a wild turkey. If you're really lucky, since black bears are not true hibernators, you might even see a bear taking a break from his long winter sleep.
Hiking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, fishing, photography.
