Little Pigeon Forge River

One of my favorite things in the Great Smoky Mountains is the Little Pigeon Forge River. I took a lot of photos of this "little river" while we were visiting. It's just fascinating to me. The Little Pigeon Forge River runs through both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN. It has many twists and turns and freezing cold water! It's beautiful whether you see it on a calm day or after a day of heavy rainfall, which was the case on our most recent trip. The water was high and rushing along over the stones. I can remember visiting this little river in my younger days and getting out of the car and taking the shoes or sandals off and going for a wade in the stream. I hope you enjoyed the photo. I just wanted to share the memory(ies) with you! © 2020 Karen Gros, All rights reserved

This does look a very lovely spot. It's nice to paddle in cold water.

This one has lots of big boulders in it and not passable in many places. It is a beautiful little river though! One day I'll get brave and go white water rafting..but in the summer!!

@kareng I wouldn't be brave enough to try white water rafting but it does look a lot of fun.

We get to visit there every couple of years at least. One year we went three times. I'm hoping to get another visit in next year.

You may I think. It should not be a problem unless there are traveling restriction imposed by your government.

@id_peace That is true but Covid cases are still rising here which is very alarming.

@kareng — have you ever taken the trail from Gatlinburg to the Sugarlands Visitor Center? I walked some of it a couple or years ago...didn’t make it all the way (because it was hot and I knew I’d have to come back!), but it was lovely along the river!

@FourWalls Not that I recall. It wouldn't work now because hubby can't walk that far and I probably couldn't either.
