Sugarlands Valley Nature Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Physically challenged hikers will enjoy this chance to explore the Smokies away from the roads. The entire path is paved and nearly level. As a self-guiding nature trail, it has numbered features along the way, as well as tactile exhibits for the visually impaired. An interpretive leaflet (50 cents to keep) is available at the trailhead. Additionally, features along this trail have been recorded on audiotape. A copy of the tape and a tape player are available at Sugarlands Visitor Center. While the paved path, easy access, and proximity to the main park road might detract from a “wilderness” experience, this hike provides a wonderful opportunity for those wanting a short, easy hike."
--Kevin Adams, Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
"This fully accessible trail is a must-see Smokies experience for even the hard-core hiker. It is very well done, with wonderfully informative interpretive plaques as well as tactile exhibits for the visually impaired.
This path conveys the appeal of the well-watered, verdant valleys that drew so many settlers to the foot of these high mountains."
--Randy Johnson, Best Easy Day Hikes: Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
