On this hike you can devote half an hour, half a day, or half a week if you choose to camp. You can amble along the flat trail as far as you like, and when you’ve had enough, turn around and amble back. It’s a creek walk, a forest walk, and a history lesson all in one. During early April you’ll see dwarf irises, trilliums, and numerous other wildflowers. During October Little River Trail becomes a riot of color and is one of the finer autumn forest walks in the Smokies. At any time of year—from a half hour before sunrise until a half hour after sunset—you can dip a fly into the river and try your hand at the large brown and rainbow trout.
