Smoky Mountain Hiking Trails: Mt. LeConte

Here are a few more pictures from our recent hike to the top of Mt. LeConte in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Be sure also to check out these sunset views from Mt. LeConte from the same hiking trip. Also see our guide to the many Trails to Mt. LeConte.

Here’s a good picture of Rainbow Falls on the trail to Mt. LeConte. It’s easier to see the scale of the waterfall with the people there. (check our other Rainbow Falls post also)
