Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains range runs the entire length of this national park, which covers more than 520,000 acres almost evenly divided between North Carolina and Tennessee. Newfound Gap Road bisects the park, which is 53 miles long and 18 miles wide. Some of the highest mountain peaks in eastern North America are found in the Smokies; the main ridge does not drop below 5,000 feet for a distance of 36 miles. The park is open year-round. Information about naturalist-led hikes, campfire programs and other park activities can be obtained at visitor centers near the Cherokee entrance.
