Have you ever heard the word “summiting?” That’s what mountain climbers call it when they reach the very top of the mountain they are climbing. There’s more to summiting than reaching your goals, too; the summiting experience also includes breaking away from a wooded trail into the full force of crisp, clear winds, and taking a look around you – all around you – at some of the most inspiring sights nature has to offer. You can achieve this experience while climbing and hiking in the Smoky Mountains, of course, but also at our high alpine condos in Gatlinburg, TN.
You Can Summit in Gatlinburg, Too
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Gatlinburg can’t be accused of false advertising – there really are mountains out in Tennessee’s hill country. From the Gatlinburg area it’s just a short drive to two great mountain hikes nearby, Mt. LeConte and Clingmans Dome. Mt. LeConte requires a 5.5 mile hike to the summit, great for more experienced hikers, and Clingmans Dome features Tennessee’s highest point and a much shorter, paved hike perfect for quick walks or families with young kids. Why not make a “Summiting Saturday” part of an upcoming weekend?
All of the View, None of the Effort
Of course, summiting has its downsides. If it didn’t, we’d all be out every day, climbing mountains. It takes a fair amount of effort to make it up the side of the mountain, and once you’re there, well, you’ve got to go back down. Wouldn’t it be great if you could actually relax, with all the comforts of home, and still enjoy a world-class view?
