Quiet Walkways Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Smokies’ “Quiet Walkways” are great offerings—short strolls through sylvan settings along the Newfound Gap Road and in other places. They lead to very easy glimpses of nature and are often less busy than trails to specific points of interest.

Some tie in to existing trails but most are segments of now-interrupted valley roads used by early settlers or loggers. These paths invite motorists to get out of their cars and stretch their legs. There are four along Newfound Gap Road between the Sugarlands Visitor Center and Newfound Gap.

The first Quiet Walkway (at 1 mile) explores a setting similar to the Sugarlands Nature Trail without the pavement or people. Bear right near the river to reach a nicely intact portion of the old valley road."
