The Alum Cave Bluffs trail has the BEST view of the park but it is a BEAR to get up! especially when you have a 20lb bag. Mt. LeConte offers some amazing views of Pigeon Forge and Glatinburg (sp?) as well.

March is the best time to go only because the skies are always clear. We had an AWFUL t-storm at where we slept.

A few years ago, my wife and I hiked up the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River to Ramsey Cascade, which is on Mt. Guyot, NE of Mt. Le Conte. I've done a lot of hiking in East Tennessee, but that was the most beautiful trail I have ever taken. If you are ever back there again, be sure to take the hike to Ramsey Cascade.

Quote:
RAMSEY CASCADES HIKING TRAIL:

Eight miles round trip. A Strenuous hike leading to the park's highest waterfall. Pass through an old-growth forest before reaching the 80 foot, highest single plunging water in the park. Do NOT attempt to climb to the top of the cascades. Several visitors have fallen to their death. From Greenbrier, follow the signs to the Ramsey Cascades trailhead. Elevation gain is 2,375 feet.

Cool! Gorgeous isn't it? I love the fact that most of the trail follows the Little Pigeon River. There is a post card picture around every bend. Also, I'm sure you liked the old growth forest.

We were there in July. It was hot and sunny. When we got to the falls, I was so hot and sweaty, I just jumped underneath. The water was so cold, I thought the shock was giving me a heart attack!
