The Incredible Hike In Tennessee That Leads To A Fascinating Abandoned Settlement
By Chris Dodge|Published November 27, 2023
My name is Chris Dodge and I live right here in the great state of Tennessee. My family and I are full adventurers filled with passion to see the amazing things our state has to offer. We are avid hikers and have explored many different places in Tennessee and beyond but we are always thankful to be living in such a glorious state.
The Great Smoky Mountains are filled with marvelous wonders big and small. I feel like you could spend a lifetime in those mountains and never see it all. For instance, did you know there is an abandoned settlement in the Smokies? I’m not talking about the ghost town of Elkmont, either — there is lesser-known gem just waiting to be discovered, too! This trail is like walking back in time to see these old mountains the way they were long before this became the nation’s most visited national park.
Did you know about this abandoned settlement in the Smokies? I hope this encourages you to explore our incredible national park and appreciate its natural beauty as well as its historical significance. I recommend using the AllTrails App which is a must any time I go hiking. Download the Old Sugarlands and Rock House Trail and keep track while you hike.
