Come for a guided nature walk and explore the best of what the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has to offer. For two decades, your naturalist guides from A Walk in the Woods have safely taken over 100,000 people through these mountains. They'll lead you to some of the most magical places in North America. You'll learn about the natural and human history of the Smokies in a fun and delightful way. You'll hear Cherokee lore and maybe an Appalachian tall tale. You'll learn what the Native Americans and Settlers did for food and medicine before there were grocery stores and pharmacies. You might even sample a tasty mountain treat. Every guided walk is geared towards enjoying the journey at a pleasant pace, using all of your senses to explore nature in a new way.

You will also explore a small family cemetery, a 19th century barn, spring-house and restored cabin, and more. The difficulty for this 3-hour tour is considered easy, with a few moderate spots.
