The Smokies’ Quiet Walkways are great offerings—short strolls through sylvan settings along the Newfound Gap Road and other locations. 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 old roads used by settlers or loggers. These paths invite motorists to stretch their legs and return. There are five along Newfound Gap Road between the Oconaluftee Visitor Center and Newfound Gap.
