Great Smoky Mountains trail map

Purchase trail map from AmazonPurchase trail map from AmazonThe below trail map is great for trip planning, since it shows distances, trail shelters, etc. However, it’s not great for travel in the backcountry since it doesn’t show topographic lines; you may want to purchase the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map from Amazon if you’re going to be doing overnight trips or lots of long hikes. (If you’re just car touring and sticking near the roads, then this map probably isn’t necessary.)

Great Smoky Mountains lodging map

Interactive Great Smoky Mountains lodging mapBy far, the highest concentration of hotels near the park is in Gatlinburg, TN; the Hotels.com interactive lodging map to the right is focused on that area specifically. It might be a bit overwhelming, so here are the Gatlinburg lodging facilities sorted by highest guest rating. Or check out options outside of Gatlinburg; Cherokee, NC hotels would be better for visiting from the south side, for example.
