This is a relatively flat trail that runs for 1.9 miles from Gatlinburg to Sugarlands Visitor Center, offering beautiful views of the Little Pigeon River. To access the trailhead, simply drive from our hotel to the Parkway and turn left. Just after passing the traffic light at Ski Mountain Road, there is a large parking lot on the right-hand side. Once you have parked, walk one block down to River Road where you will find the start of the trail!
