Every year my friends and I take a girls trip to relax, hike, and catch up! For 2020, we decided on Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This is about an 8-hour drive from St. Louis and perfect for a long weekend. April is normally the month of our annual girls trip, but due to COVID-19, we had to reschedule to June. Smoky Mountains National Park opened in May with a phased reopening. Mid-June turned out to be a good time to go, as by this time most of the trails and visitor centers were open. The cabin price was a little higher due to high season rates and my friend who was supposed to be only 5 months pregnant in April was now 7 months along and it was a little too risky to make the drive. My friend Abby and I did continue on for the trip and made the best of everything.
Since we were only traveling for a long weekend, we only explored the North Side of the park. We started our visit at the Sugarlands Visitor Center. No matter how much advice you have been given, blog posts read, and research done; I have found that park rangers are usually your best resource. Park Rangers know what is best to recommend for the season, daily weather, road closures and trail difficulty to best plan your visit.
