We were gifted another sunny autumn day on the mountain yesterday, and expect to see a repeat of such pleasant conditions the next few days. Temps remain mild for this time of year hanging out in the 40s and 50s, with a warmup anticipated come mid week. Colors are transitioning along the park’s upper elevations. With increased traffic in the Smokies, remember that Mt. LeConte has several trails accessing the summit, each unique in their offerings. So if the crowds along Alum Cave aren’t your cup of tea, what a great opportunity to ascend the mountain from a different angle.
Have a great day.
