Upper Tremont Road is a route in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that is a secret little mountain path where visitors can travel along and view great scenes from days gone by and get some neat views of what life was like for the railroad and logging communities in our region.
Following along a creek, this railroad path is a gravel road that most any vehicle can travel on. There are post markers along the way that point to areas of historical or cultural significance. Lots of families recommend this area when staying in our Townsend Tennessee Cabin Rentals.
This route is particularly beautiful after a nice rain. The rains usually make the water in the creek and streams flow a lot faster and produce some gorgeous waterfalls.There is a visitor center and gift shop located at the Tremont Institute found along the way. There are some fantastic impromptu hiking and fishing spots along the way as well. If you want to see the true heart of the Smokies, take a trip down this route and pack a picnic lunch. The Foothills Parkway is also nearby and is a great driving route and trail.
