Tennessee Glamping provides enough amenities for you to never leave the property but if you're looking to take on some hiking we have created a list of the best hiking trails nearby.
From waterfalls to mountain views, easy to hard, we've created a list of the top 8 hiking trails that our guest enjoy the most.
1. Foster Falls
By far the most popular hike among our guests. At just a little over 2 miles round trip you'll be able to get amazing views, pictures, and take a dip in the swimming hole at the base of the waterfall. The hike is very rocky and can be slippery so make sure you don't under estimate this hike. The rocks can be a little tricky for a dog to navigate, especially when its busy in the summer.
2. Fiery Gizzard
You cant mention Foster Falls without thinking about Fiery Gizzard. This is known as the long way or the difficult way to Foster Falls. It's a point-to-point hike so make sure you plan accordingly because at 12.5 miles each way you wont want to get lost. It's rated difficult with 1758ft of elevation gain so bring you hiking boots.
3. Greeter Falls
This is the easiest waterfall hike and also the closest to the dome. While here you can actual hike to two separate waterfalls each about 1 mile long. Make sure you're dog is comfortable using metal stairs or else you be limited to only one waterfall. Checkout this awesome review by She the Adventurous
4. Stone Door Trail
If you're looking for a quick hike with a view then stone door is your kind of hike. A short 1.8 mile out and back hike with an overlook in the middle. Bring your camera because the views in the fall are amazing.
5. Savage gulf
The cool part of this trail is that you can make it as easy or as difficult as you'd like. The trails range from 3 miles to 17 miles so make sure you know which trail you're on depending on your level of skill. You can see waterfalls and overlook views while bringing your dog along.
6. Laurel Trail
An easy, dog friendly that is assessable all year long. At 5.5 miles you'll be able to enjoy a nice easy hike with so much to see.
7. Collins Gulf Trail
This trail gives you the option to see the overlook with a 1 mile hike or challenge any hiker with the 12 mile stagecoach road trail. Dogs are allowed but make sure you plan your trip accordingly with the summer weather.
8. Falls Creek Falls
Although its the furthest from the property at 1 hour away, if you're from out of town this is one of the coolest waterfalls around and a must see.
