Dog Advice in the Smokies





Mount LeConte Lodge With Pigeon Forge Below


Originally uploaded by americasroof.

The Washington Post has this advice on dogs in the Smokies.
The national park does allow dogs in campgrounds, picnic areas and along roads, including scenic overlooks — but pooches must be on leashes no longer than six feet. Dogs are also permitted on the Gatlinburg Trail and the Oconaluftee River Trail. For people with pets, the park also recommends Mount Rogers and the Pisgah forest, among other national areas, and Kain suggests Shenandoah National Park, where dogs can trot along all but 20 miles of trails (out of a total 500 miles), and Grandfather Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
