The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is obviously a focal point of your group vacation. From Cherokee Lodge, you can see the beautiful mountains, so you can step outside and take in the mountain air and gaze into the treetops. Choose a day to go hiking and exploring. You’re only a few minutes from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so you won’t have a far drive before or after a day of hiking.

Make sure, when you’re hiking with a group, you choose a trail that everyone will be able to master. Remember that you are only as fast as your slowest hiker. If you have very small children, don’t expect them to be able to hike a strenuous trail. In addition, make sure you pack lots of extra water and snacks, especially for kids! It is not recommended to drink the water from streams or waterfalls in the national park because it is contaminated with bacteria. For everyone’s safety, it’s best just to pack bottled water.
