These Hiking Spots In The Great Smoky Mountains Were The First To Be Opened To The Public
There’s nothing more beautiful or welcoming than a day spent amidst the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. As Tennessee begins to slowly reopen after a series of COVID-19 related closures, folks are making their way out to the natural wonders of the state’s mountainous regions. Not all hiking trails are open, however, so make sure you keep an eye out for updates. The three we’ve noted below are a handful of the first to welcome hikers back into the fold, and we highly encourage you to experience them for yourself. The open hiking trails in Tennessee are well worth an afternoon spent.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
