Best Easy Day Hikes: Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Mountain Farm Museum may just be a stroll, but combine it with one of the Smokies’ best kept secret easy walks, the Oconaluftee River Trail, and you have one of the park’s best combinations of scenery and interpretation.

It is a masterful meshing of insight into Native Americans and later settlers, the perfect outdoor add- on to the exhibits at the new (since 2011) Oconaluftee Visitor Center.
