Weather

With elevations that range from 800 feet to over 6,000 feet, weather in the Great Smoky Mountains can vary dramatically. Blue skies at the base of a mountain doesn’t mean it will be the same on the peak, so ... Read more
hikers should be sure to pack layers. Summers are humid and hot with afternoon temperatures in the 90s (32). These hotter months also draw the biggest crowds, though October is a close second, when everyone heads to the Smokies to see the leaves changing color. Winter tends to be fairly moderate with more extreme weather happening at higher elevations, and spring can yield unpredictable, rapidly-changing weather with sunny skies and snow flurries happening within hours of each other.

Woodstock

Native Americans of the Woodland period were among the first human inhabitants of what is now Sevierville, arriving sometime around 200 A.D. and living in villages scattered around the Forks-of-the-River area. Between 1200 and 1500 A.D., during the Dallas Phase of the Mississippian period, a group of Native Americans established McMahan Mound Site, a relatively large village centered on a platform mound and village site surrounded by a palisade just above the confluence of the West Fork and the Little Pigeon River. This mound was approximately 16 feet (5 m) high and 240 feet (73 m) across. An excavation in 1881 unearthed burials, arrow-points, a marble pipe, glass beads, pottery, and engraved objects. At the time of this first excavation, the mound was located on a farm owned by the McMahan family, and was thus given the name "McMahan Indian Mound". By the early 18th century, the Cherokee controlled much of the Tennessee side of the Smokies, establishing a series of settlements along the Little Tennessee River. A section of the Great Indian Warpath forked at the mouth of Boyd's Creek, just north of Sevierville. The main branch crossed the French Broad and continued along Dumplin Creek to the Nolichucky basin in northeastern Tennessee. The other branch, known as the Tuckaleechee and Southeastern Trail, turned south along the West Fork of the Little Pigeon River. This second branch forked again at modern-day Pigeon Forge, with the main trail turning east en route to Little River and the other branch, known as the Indian Gap Trail, crossing the crest of the Smokies to the south and descending into the Oconaluftee area of North Carolina. The various Cherokee trails criss-crossing Sevier Co. brought the first Euro-American traders and settlers to the area.

Louisville

It's a great place for shopping and the traffic here isn't as bad as Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It is also less expensive to stay here and it is the home of the legendary Dolly Parton. Go by the courthouse and check out her statue.

Sevierville Tennessee is located on the eastern edge of the state, the town sits in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains, about ten miles north of the park. There are plenty of outdoor activities such as horseback riding and the Forbidden Caverns for the kids. Additionally, this quaint and quiet town's claim to fame is as the birthplace of Dolly Parton as well as being home to outlet malls and restaurants out on the highway.
