Newfound Gap is a beloved place for a scenic drive or hike, and is just minutes from our Smoky Mountain cabin rentals. In Appalachian vernacular, a gap is a mountain pass, and as you drive along this beautiful area you’ll be treated to jaw-dropping peaks and valleys. A visit in the springtime means beautiful blooming trees in shades of pinks, purple, and white, while summers are lush and green. And of course, an autumn trip to this special place means gorgeous foliage and crisp mountain air.
Experienced hikers will delight in summiting Mt. LeConte, the third-highest peak in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you’re looking for a challenge, begin at the Alum Cave trailhead for an 11-mile round trip adventure through this beautiful area. The summit of Mt. LeConte is well worth the effort, where the view spans for miles and miles and features beautiful mountains, wildflowers, and interesting rock formations. At the end of your hike, you can treat yourself to a Smoky Mountain vacation rental with a hot tub to soak your tired legs.
