Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains some of the highest mountains east of the Mississippi River, but it's the ease of access that makes this national park the United States' most visited.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is known for nature, trails, scenic drive, wildlife, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: trek along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Clingmans Dome, stroll through Alum Cave Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Chimney Tops Trail.

To find other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in September, and nighttime lows around 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
