After my week of training in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I figured I owed it to myself to get out and go for a hike. I opted for the Old Sugarlands Trail since it is close to Gatlinburg and a relatively easy, and not too long hike. I parked at the small parking area off of the Newfound Gap Road
The trail closely paralleled the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River
Soon after leaving the old CCC site the trail actually became a well maintained gravel road.
