Yesterday ended up being a beautiful day on the mountain, and Friday is picking up right where Thursday left off. Shouldn’t take long for temps to jump up into the 60s with such pleasant skies. Today and tomorrow are looking the best days of the weekend, with temps expected to be quiet toasty down below. Rain chances increase substantially sometime Sunday, so get your outdoors fix before then if you want to avoid the potential slog!
July 4th Eve is typically one of the busiest traffic influx days of the entire year in Sevier County. If you’re arriving today before a planned trip to the mountain tomorrow, patience will serve you well. With the holiday falling on what should be a sunny Saturday, expect a great deal of people to be hitting the trails early, then zipping down early in the afternoon to make it back in time for evening gatherings, BBQ’s, and fireworks. Add bear traffic jams into the mix and you could have a really slow exit out of the Park.
Our gift shop hours are 12:00-5:00, so if you are coming up early on a day hike, it’s advisable to hit the various vistas around the mountain first. You can always checkout the shirts and souvenirs when we open at noon and before you start your descent. Before noon, our team is working diligently and expeditiously to prepare the entire lodge for upcoming overnight guests, cleaning, organizing, and sanitizing. Thank you for your patience as we fulfill our commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all lodge visitors.
Have a great day!
