We enjoyed the half mile round trip trail. Not very busy when we went which made for a very peaceful walk in the woods.

My favorite was the hike to cataract falls by visitor center! Quite, not crowded and flat. Easy, not too long. So pretty too. My kids climbed up next to the falls for pics. Not many people there.

It was a very easy walk in nature around sugar land visitor center. Would recommend to anyone not wanting to do a big climb.

This trial is very easy to walk. Paved! Great trail for anyone in power chair/wheel chairs. Beautiful.

A flat, paved 1/2 mile trail right near the sugarland entrance. Good for people with wheel chairs. Nice views of the river.

We hiked the OLD sugarland trail, that is NOT paved. We did about 4 miles of it, believe it is 10 if you do the whole thing. The first mile goes all along the water, beautiful views. Trail was rated as 'moderate'. Highly recommend.

If you would like a morning stroll or jog from the edge of Gatlinburg to the Sugarlands Visitors Center, this trail is for you. The path is level, fairly short, and uncrowded. While most of the scenery is very pleasant, you do come across a...More

This is a easy hike only a half mile away from Sugarlands Visitor Center down 441. This is I believe one of the only ADA approved and paved trails in the park. It is short and while it doesn't have any major views or sites,...More
