Chimney Tops trail smokey mountains national park
Yep thats the trail that we took to get to the other peek. More like rock climbing at the top. It gives you the feeling of being at the peek of a really tall roller coaster. Hundreds of feet down to your left hunderds of feet down to your right. It started raining on our way back from the other peek making the rocks slick & it got windy & it got cold from being wet. Back at the bottom I jumped into the pool of 60 deg water off the rock at the middle of the bridge.
Winter Hiking CHIMNEY TOPS (Great Smoky Mountains)
We took the kids and hiked the 3.8 round trip of the newly reopened Chimney Tops. There was still some snow and ice left from the cold weather last week.
**Note: The top of the Chimneys is NOT open. You cannot climb the mountain to the top. A platform has been built for viewing. All but the last .5 mile of the trail is open.

Clingmans Dome - Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN
My second hike of the weekend on June 17, and my final hike to finish the Carolina Lookout Tower and South Beyond 6000 Challenges. I had some bad heel blisters, so I made this hike shorter than my original plan, but it still had to be 5+ miles to qualify. I began at the Fork Ridge Trailhead on Clingmans Dome Rd in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and connected with the Mountains-to-Sea Trail and Appalachian Trail. Heading west the AT immediately climbs to the top of Mt. Collins (6,196 feet), the 39th SB6K peak. From there it is a long, pleasant stroll through Collins Gap, the low point of the hike. It is a long, gradual climb from Collins Gap to the top of Clingmans Dome (6,643 feet). As my final peak on both challenges, reaching the summit was anticlimactic considering the crowds and the cloud cover. You would think the highest peak in the Smokies and the 3rd highest in the East would be more exciting. I'll have to return in the winter when the road is closed.
The large clouds mostly obscured the NE views of Kephart and LeConte and west views of Thunderhead Mt. Everything else was hazy. On the bright side, it was nice and cool at the summit. I dropped down to the parking area, where I was severely disappointed in the offerings at the visitors center. All they sold was warm bottled water and a snack cup. I had high hopes for a soda or Gatorade, and thus only carried 1 liter of water. With all of the tired, sweaty tourists you think cold drinks would be a moneymaker. From there I took the Clingmans Dome Bypass Trail, and re-summited Clingmans Dome with more cloud cover. On my way back, as I approached Mt. Collins, I got caught in an unnerving thunderstorm with lightning crashing overhead. I crouched for a few minutes during the worst part, then scuffled through the muddy mess of a trail during a torrential downpour that lasted nearly an hour. At this point I think every hike in the last 2 months has ended with heavy rain.
Hike was 9 miles with 2,393 feet elevation gain in 4 hours and 40 minutes.

The 2016 Great Smoky Mountains wildfires are a complex of wildfires which began in late November 2016. Some of the towns most impacted are Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, both near Great Smoky Mountains National Park.The fires have claimed at least 14 lives, injured 134, and are one the largest natural disasters in the history of Tennessee.
As of December 12, the fires had burned more than 10,000 acres (15 square miles) inside the national park, and 6,000 acres in other parts of the area. At least 14,000 area residents and tourists were forced to evacuate, while over 2000 buildings were damaged and/or destroyed.
One of the largest wildfires is the Chimney Tops 2 Fire, which has burned more than 10,000 acres, and closed the Chimney Tops Trail.
The Great Smoky Mountains wildfires are the deadliest wildfires in the eastern U.S. since the Great Fires of 1947, which killed 16 people in Maine.In addition, the fires are also the most deadly and destructive of the 2016 Southeastern United States wildfires.

Roaring Fork Motor Trail Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Just outside of Gatlinburg Tennessee is one of the National Parks hidden gems that not everyone knows about. This is a tour of this wonderful motor trail that I think rivals its sister Cades Cove.

Hiking Chimney Tops Great Smoky Mountains National Park
If you are ever in the Smokies and you want a good work out, well this is a great trail for you. It isn't really all that long at 1.75 miles one way (obviously having to back track to get back to the parking lot), but it is pretty steep. You gain about 1500ft on your way up and the views are absolutely worth it. As of 2018 the pinnacles were still closed off from the fire in 2016, but that only cuts out about .25 miles of the trail.
