Here are some pictures of a recent hike to the top of Mt LeConte. Enjoy the sunset! The summit views with the sunset are from Cliff Top, one of the four peaks of Mt. LeConte – some would say the very best views of the Smoky Mountains are from Cliff Top.
The hike up was along the Boulevard Trail, a great favorite among Smoky Mountain hiking trails, and the longest and most arduous of the Mt. LeConte trails. The trail is about 8 miles long one way, and gains and loses elevation continually as it dips and rises through rolling terrain (with some tricky places along rock sides).
Somehow the views of the Smoky Mountains match the rolling nature of this Mt. LeConte hike – wave upon wave. See what you think.
I've worked for Gatlinburg Falls and now Venture Resorts since their inception in 2004. I was born in New London Connecticut, but was raised in Florida. I attended the University of Florida and earned a BS in Electrical Engineering. I then made the obvious transition from that world to Cabin Rentals. I enjoy everything about my job from people management to interacting with guest.
