Tennessee is a true colorful wonderland when it comes to the autumn season. Although the entire state explodes with orange, red and yellow, it’s the eastside that really knows how to show out. If you haven’t been to the Great Smoky Mountains during the months of October and November, then your fall season is about to get an infusion of beauty…with a solid amount of creepiness, too. Elkmont is an abandoned logging town tucked away in the mountains that’s only accessible by way of a hike. Venture out into the crisp air of autumn for a hike unlike any other in the state. You’re bound to have a story or two by the end of it!
