Since it starts from Smokemont Campground, this nature trail is a good choice for families who are camping. For those not staying at Smokemont and planning to drive to the trailhead, most any other short hike would be just as good, especially one of the many Quiet Walkways in the park. The park no longer publishes an interpretive guide for this nature trail. Smokemont Nature Trail crosses an overflow of Bradley Fork on a foot log, then crosses Bradley Fork and a split from the main stream. The trail loops just beyond the split. If you’re going right, you’ll climb rather steeply before descending back to Bradley Fork.
