This short but rugged hike takes you into the mountains, and ends with a beautiful double-tiered cascading waterfall seen pictured here.
It’s human nature to be a part of nature, so let’s take a walk in the woods and explore some beautiful, natural surroundings. It’s essential!
Our tours go into The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) and the neighboring areas.
With a wide variety of lush vegetation, it’s a temperate rainforest, and has been declared an International Biosphere!
Tours in The GSMNP require a Commercial Use Authorization Permit, which we have acquired, so when you purchase a tour with ‘Tours by Stella’ you are supporting this incredible biosphere, while enjoying a fun and positive experience with nature, away from fast-paced, commercial attractions.

We are Parking it Forward in the Great Smoky Mountains. Seeing over 12 million people a year, The NPS decided to step up the parking issues with tags. Be sure to purchase a parking pass before your tour to allow for parking within the park boundaries. For more information on "Park it Forward," visit the link below.
We require you to wear sturdy footwear (hiking boots or thicker tennis shoes) for walking 2 to 3 hours on uneven surfaces (No loafers or flip flops are allowed).
Tours take place rain or shine; be prepared with rain jackets or rain ponchos. Weather in the mountains can turn quickly, so it is necessary to always be prepared. For more information on the weather in the Great Smoky Mountains, visit the link below.
Bring water and a small snack (i.e. fruit, nuts or protein bars).
With over 500,000 acres of land returning to nature, wildlife is prevalent throughout the park. As humans we enjoy encountering
wildlife, it is important to know how to handle them. The National Park recommend a 50 yd distance between humans and wildlife. For more information, visit the link below.
Additional parties may be included on your tour unless you book a private tour.
