The Sugarlands Valley Nature Loop Trail is a small 0.7 mile loop hike at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Gatlinburg, TN. The trail itself is far more interesting than the name suggests - the Sugarlands Valley used to be a settlement of private properties that was eventually given away to the national park.

On this trail you'll find the remains of two homesteads - the only remaining features are two fireplaces and a stonewall right on the trail.

The trail also runs next to a creek that cuts through the Sugarlands Valley. There are benches along the creek and along the trail itself.

The trail is concrete and fully accessible except for the creek's banks.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
