The Appalachian Trail provides views of beautiful wildflowers from mid-April through May in the 2 mile section between Newfound Gap and Road Prong Trail.
Porters Creek Trail is always a great place to view wildflowers as well as Chestnut Top Trail, which starts near the ‘Y’ just inside the Park at the Townsend Entrance.
Smoky Mountains Spring Fun – Laurel Falls
A must for all spring time visitors is a visit to Laurel Falls, which are named after an evergreen shrub which blooms along the trail and near the falls in May. This 2.6 mile hike is rewarded with a beautiful waterfall at the top of the trail. The trail does have some steep drops so proceed carefully. The trail is paved all the way to the Falls so if you have small children with you for the hike, a stroller will be a good idea. Great views and lots of fun.
