Fodor's Review

The National Park Service organizes all sorts of orientation activities, such as daily guided hikes and talks. The programs vary widely from talks on mountain culture, blacksmithing, and old-time fiddle and banjo music to ranger-led walks through historical areas of the park. Most are free, though ranger-led hayrides in Cades Cove cost $14. Many of the programs are suitable for older children as well as for adults. For schedules, go to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center or other park visitor centers and pick up a free copy of the quarterly Smokies Guide newspaper, or check online for park events.
