Chimney Tops trail (Smokies)

That's too bad, weather should be spectacular this weekend!  Try to go before there's any ice on the trail. There's several rocky sections of the trial that are pretty narrow and have cables to hold onto. We did it New Years Day many years ago without crampons and it got a little hairy!

Chimney Tops has reopened.  Think it was in the last week or so.  The trail to the actual rocky peaks is closed, and may never reopen because of fire damage, but the parks system has built a viewing platform up top.  I haven't hiked it since reopening, but I've heard its a bit shorter and easier.  Here's a link to the trail:  http://www.hikinginthesmokys.com/chimney.htm

That's great news for the park...especially since Chimney Tops is such a popular trail. We hope to get to the Smokies before the end of the year and may have to check out the new viewing platform.
