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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Charlies Bunion and Nantahala National Forest. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Ramsey Cascades, trek along Upper Tremont Road in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, stroll through Porters Creek Trail, and identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork.

To find other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Great Smoky Mountains National Park road trip planning tool .

In November in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, expect temperatures between 60°F during the day and 39°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
