Welcome back to part 2 of 2 of our Fall Color Attractions in Pigeon Forge blog. If you missed part one, make sure you check it out here: Fall Color Attractions in Pigeon Forge (Part 1).
There are hundreds of ways to see the fall colors in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Fall color attractions are one of the main reasons Pigeon Fore is so popular with families and groups during the month of October. If you’re looking for some new and exciting ways to view the fall colors, you have come to the right place!
One of the best and most up-close and personal ways to view the fall colors is by taking a day hike. Stock your trusty backpack with a light lunch, grab some early morning breakfast before you head out, and hit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to spend a day beneath the shade of the leaves. Some of the best leaf-viewing trails include: Sugarland Mountain Trail, Chestnut Top Trail, Smokemont Loop and Sutton Ridge Overlook. Bring plenty of water, some bug spray, dress in layers and prepare to spend a refreshing day in the mountain air.
White water rafting may not be your thing, but what about a fishing trip? Fishing is permitted year-round in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park – just swing by Ace Hardware in Gatlinburg to acquire your fishing license. Fishing is a great way to bond with your family and also provides some spectacular fall color viewing opportunities. Cast your line, find a comfy rock, and enjoy a chat with your family while you take in the breathtaking colors and prepare to catch the big one!
