The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has over 800 miles of hiking trails and is the country’s most popular National Park. Dogs are welcome in the camp grounds, picnic areas & along roads, but your pet must be on a leash at all times. Pets should be well-behaved, and you must clean up after them.
Dogs are not allowed on most of the park’s extensive trails but are welcome on the Gatlinburg Trail. The Gatlinburg Trail travels 1.9 miles one-way from the Sugarlands Visitor Center to the outskirts of the city of Gatlinburg, TN. It is relatively flat and runs through the forest along side the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River. The trail offers beautiful views of the river, which is crossed by a pedestrian foot bridge. Foundations and chimneys of several old home sites are visible along the trail. The Oconaluftee River Trail is the second walking path on which visitors can walk dogs and bicycle.
