Ferguson Cabin Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A best-kept secret, this entry point to the national park near Maggie Valley permits an easy hike to the highest log cabin in the Smokies. The circa-1870s John Love Ferguson Cabin, the Smokies’ highest, sits 5,000 feet above sea level. It’s accessible from the gate of the Appalachian Highlands Science Learning Center, one of the five such centers established in national parks in 2001.

Once the estate of Voit Gilmore and Kathryn McNeil, the 530-acre Purchase Knob tract was donated to the park in 2000 and is the Smokies’ largest private gift. The former summer home is now a facility where school and other groups come to help scientists in residence with park research. The easy, 2.8-mile lollipop loop starts near the learning center’s gate."
