Spring is in full swing in the Smokies, which means you have more and more opportunities to get outside and enjoy the beauty of the mountains and all that they have to offer.
One way to get the most out of the great outdoors is to visit us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, where our 14-line canopy tour gives you a scenic treetop view of our rugged hillside terrain, which is in full bloom this time of year. The lush forest canopy provides shade and cooler temperatures and makes for a spectacular backdrop as you whiz from platform to platform with the greatest of ease.
Our location, more than a mile from the Pigeon Forge Parkway, is remote enough to give you a sense of the peace and stillness that can be found in the hills of East Tennessee.
Then after you zip line, Gatlinburg, TN should be your destination next week as that city hosts the 61st annual Wildflower Pilgrimage. From April 26 to May 1, everyone from the serious botanist to the weekend gardener can take advantage of unprecedented access to some of the nation's leading botanical experts and Appalachian wildlife authorities.
The Wildflower Pilgrimage offers over 150 programs including an array of instructional walks and guided hiking tours tailored to meet individual walking skill ability, along with demonstrations and guest lecturers. These tours showcase the abundant varieties of wildflowers, plants, ferns, mosses, trees and shrubs, as well as birds, reptiles and amphibians, all native to the Great Smoky Mountains.
