Mount LeConte is probably the premiere system of hiking trails for avid hikers of the Smokies. How impressive of a hiker you are around here is measured by whether or not you have successfully hiked LeConte, how many of the trails you have hiked, and how fast you hiked them! There is a guy in my circle of friends who has hiked all the trails of LeConte in one day! Now that’s impressive!
Near the top of the mountain is LeConte Lodge. Many people take a day to hike up to it, rest and relax a bit, and then hike back down the next day! There are no roads up LeConte, so how does the Lodge get supplies? Supplies are carried up the mountain by Llama train! Learn all about it by viewing a short video put together by the Great Smoky Mountains Association!
