Smoky Mountains-Cucumber Gap Loop

Smoky Mountains-Cucumber Gap Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This is an ideal Smoky Mountains hike for those who want more of a woodland stroll than lung-busting alpine ascent. Leave the Elkmont area of the park and cruise up the ultra-attractive Little River Valley, where the watercourse tumbles over huge boulders, forming large clear pools that invite a dip in the cool mountain stream.

Pass a tributary waterfall just as it reaches the Little River. Leave the Little River on an old railroad grade that gently climbs to a gap, then descent to Jakes Creek Valley and return to Elkmont."
