Cascading waters of Twentymile Creek

Twentymile is located at the southwestern corner of Great Smoky Mountains National Park just west of the Fontana Dam. It is one of the more out-of-the-way sections of the park and serves only as an access point to a variety of hiking trails, which makes it a great place for those seeking to avoid the crowds.


There are many hiking trails in the Twentymile Region and over 800 miles of trails in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is not possible for me to hike all of them, but I did hike a few in each region. Here is a suggestion for a day-hike at Twentymile.

Twentymile Loop Trail
An 8-mile loop made up of the Wolf Ridge Trail, the Twentymile Loop Trail, and the Twentymile Trail. This easy to moderate hike follows two creeks and passes numerous picturesque cascades.
