LeConte Via Rainbow Falls Trail

  • Distance: 5.4 Miles One Way
  • Elevation Gain: 1685 Feet

Starting from Light 8 in Gatlinburg, turn onto Historic Nature Trail / Airport Road. After driving 0.7 miles veer right onto Cherokee Orchard Road, upon which you’ll enter into Great Smoky Mountain National Park. After driving another 2.2 miles you’ll enter the one-way Cherokee Orchard Loop Road. After driving roughly 0.6 miles on the loop, the Rainbow Falls Trailhead will be located on your right (if this parking lot is full, there’s an auxiliary parking area about a tenth-of-a-mile further down the road).

Life is short, smile while you still have teeth.
