Albright Grove Professional Review and Guide
"Although the superlative scenic and ecological attributes of the Albright Grove hike are dulled by the devastating death of the eastern hemlock trees, this hike remains a crown jewel in the Smokies. If you like big trees and lush forests, you’ll love this hike. And if you don’t like crowded trails, you’ll like it even better. Relatively few people visit this remote section of the park. The trailhead may not be a safe place to leave your car. In the past, several cars have been stolen or vandalized. While such activity has subsided, you are still taking a chance parking here, especially if leaving your vehicle overnight."
--Kevin Adams, Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
Great hike! A bit strenous if you are not the avid hiker, as it steeply ascends the whole way up. The scenery is beautiful, especially when you get to Albright Grove Loop.
