Dogs can’t get enough of nature, making the Great Smoky Mountains National Park truly irresistible for pooches. Although pets aren’t permitted on hiking trails, you can take your dog to any of the park’s campgrounds and picnic areas, as long as he is on a leash at all times. Also, dogs are allowed on the Gatlinburg Trail, a specially designated 1.9 mile one-way path that starts at the Sugarlands Visitor Center. Of course, you can always take your dog on a scenic drive through Cades Cove or along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail.
