Squeezing in a Quick Run Along the Oconaluftee River
This three mile round-trip trail in the Great Smoky Mountains Park meanders along the Oconaluftee River and is dotted with native flora. Take in Native American history, artifacts and mountain farm life at the LEED-certified visitor center located at the midpoint. It’s a peaceful trail to get in one last quick run before reluctantly returning to metropolis.
Tip: Bring fly-fishing equipment and try your hand at catch and release along the river. Oconaluftee River Trail is pet-friendly.
