Great Smoky Mountains National Park Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 25 photos
While driving along US 441 between SUgarlands and Ocanaluftee Visitors Centers, you'll notice quite a few signs advertising quiet walkways. These are nothing more than short trails of about a quarter mile that are supposed to be "a little bit of the world as it once was", or so says the sign, and we all know that signs never lie. I'm not sure if they mean the world at large or the Smokies but I assume the latter.
But most people drive through Great Smoky without walking on any of the trails and stick to their cars and the overlooks. That's what the park ranger said and those men and women certainly never ever lie. Anyway, the quiet walkways usually are quiet as everyone heads for bigger and better things. So a brief walk on one of those walkways can offer a respite from traffic, crowds and the world as it is now. Something to think about.
