THROUGH THE MT LECONTE TRAIL
Known to be one of the most iconic hikes east of the Mississippi, Mt LeConte is unforgettable. This hike has so much to offer including the physical challenge of reaching the top. From a rainforest setting, a small cave, The Bluffs, Inspiration Point, The Grassy Slide to Myrtle Point (the peak) you are sure to be impressed. It is important to be in good hiking condition when taking on Mt LeConte. This may serve as a good motivation to get in shape prior to your time in the Smokies.
This just under an 11 mile round trip hike is strenuous. Prior to participating you should know that you are healthy. You should know that preexisting conditions will be a factor. You should be physically fit enough to accomplish this 11 mile hike with elevation.
