0.7 Miles Easy
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.
