Hey, Dad & DD21 will be in GSMNP on the Saturday before Christmas, staying in Gatlinburg, we only have 1 full day in the park, so I want to make the most of it, we'll of course have a car. What do you recommend doing?
My plans so far not in order are; Cade's Cove, Laurel Falls, and Grotto Falls, maybe even continuing to Brushy Mountain, but unsure we enjoy walking, Dad does have a bad back, looking for easy to moderate walks? We won't have hiking gear with us, just good trainers, and backpack with water etc..
What else do you recommend? Any other trails or driving loops that will be open in December? And orders you suggest doing things?
Looking forward to your responses. Thanks :D
