‪جبل leconte كانت رحلة مرهقة لكن آراء جميل جدا أن بالتأكيد يستحق ذلك. أخذنا Alum Cave تريل وهو 5 . 5 أميال. هو اصعب إلى قمة ولكن أفضل المناظر الطبيعية الخلابة لذلك فهو الأكثر شعبية. وقد استغرق الأمر أكثر قليلاً 4 ساعات ونصف للوصول إلى Lodge. خطة عند الحجز في وقت مبكر إذا كنت ترغب فى الإقامة في النزل. كان علينا أن الحجز 7 شهور مقدما. يوجد فقط بعض الكبائن، وهو مكان شهير. كان العشاء في ستة كان الطعام جيدا. فريق العمل ودود و يقدمون الوجبات تناسب العائلات. يمكنك الحصول على العشاء والإفطار خلال إقامتك. كابينة أقمنا في نمت ثمانية وكانت هناك مع يعجب. لا يوجد كهربائية أو دش. عند غروب الشمس ويمكنك أن تتنزه سيرًا على بعد 800 متر على ممر أن بالتأكيد يستحق ذلك. واحدة من أجمل مشاهد ما يمكن رؤيته على للمشي لمسافات طويلة. حول 6:30 صباح اليوم التالي كنا ممر مرة أخرى أن أكثر بقليل على بعد 800 متر لمشاهدة شروق الشمس. بالتأكيد أنصح هذه الرحلة. كنا نوعا ما ولكنها بالتأكيد أحببتُ ذلك.‬

‪Recently my son and I hiked Mt. LeConte via the Alum Cave Trail. I'm not going to say it was easy, but it was so worth it. The views were absolutely breathtaking! I will say that for me the descent was much harder than the climb so make sure you have good shoes. Go on a weekday and start early in the morning so you can take your time to enjoy this wonderful adventure!‬

‪We did the Alim Cave trail and it was very strenuous but worth it. The views on the way up were amazing and the views at the top were even better! Checked this off my bucket list!‬

‪This was one of the most challenging hikes we have done. Have a 12 and 9 year old and they were able to do it but we are very active people. The trail gets small and narrow where you are looking down cliffs. Absolutely worth the hike! We were able to complete the entire hike from alum cave trail to the top in about 5 hours 15 minutes up and back.‬

‪I hiked Mount LeConte on a beautiful spring Saturday. We arrived early around 8:00 and the main parking lot was already full. Thankfully, there was ample parking in the overflow lot. Although I am not an avid hiker, I am an avid exerciser. I found this hike to be very strenuous. The beautiful view was amazing at the top. We also enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs at the lodge and reading the interesting historical displays inside. LeConte sparked a new interest in challenging hikes and I hope to continue. A few points from a first-timer:

-Wear gloves, a warm hat, and wool socks. I would not have put these in for an April hike unless I had read to do so. The hike started out very cold and was also chilly at the top. We actually saw icicles and a little bit of snow on the ground close to the summit, but the high temperature below was in the upper 50s.

-Bring hiking sticks. It is much steeper than I imagined. Of course, that goes without saying, but this is where hiking sticks came in handy. There are quite a few places where you will fall very far if you are not paying attention. The sticks helped the most when going downhill. If it is raining, be extra careful.

-Invest in good-quality hiking boots. I have gotten away with tennis shoes for shorter hikes, but could not have done so for LeConte. The terrain is rough with lots of rocks and I needed the support they provided. (Still, I did see a good number of folks in tennis shoes, and maybe they did OK. I could just tell a big difference).

-Research your route and don't exclusively count on signs to guide you. We almost got lost. At Alums Cave, some hikers put their jackets on top of the sign marking the direction where LeConte continued up. We started hiking in the wrong direction, up in the sandy area. A more experienced hiker saw us and told us we were going the wrong way. We had no idea. There were no markers on the last few miles up to LeConte either. Yes, the path kept going, but on a windy or rainy day, I could see it being easy to veer off in the wrong direction. We saw a lot of solo hikers. This seems unsafe in general even for a crowded day, but I definitely would not recommend going alone on this hike as a first-timer. There are too many ways to get off the trail.

-Check if the water spicket is working at the lodge. I carried way too much water in my backpack going up because I did not realize I could refill it there.

-Check the lodge hours. We happened to be there when it was open, but it has odd hours. They do sell food, but just make sure it is open if you are counting on it for snacks.

-Do not plan anything else during the day of your hike. We had a 6:00 dinner reservation and did not spend as much time at the top for this reason. We ended up canceling it, but will reserve the whole day for LeConte next time.‬

‪This was a difficult hike for my family. We aren’t hikers. That’s the problem. We took the Rainbow Falls trail up & it goes up, and up, and up. The hike to Rainbow Falls was ok but the mile markers seemed to be off. What we thought would be a 6.7 mile hike turned out to be 8.8 miles straight up. Don’t ask me how, just know once you pass the Falls, you still have a long way to go! If you’re prepared for that, it’s a beautiful hike.
We came down Trillium Gap. It’s “easier” but not easy & adds almost 2 miles if you’re going back to your car at the Rainbow Falls trailhead. (At least there weren’t parts where you were really close to high exposed ledges which is why we took this trail down since it was raining & wind gusts of 50 mph). When the River Fork road is closed, you have no option but to park at Rainbow Falls.
The lodge itself....great, friendly staff. Very welcoming!! The cabins are very well built....they withstood 50-70 mph gusts of winds during the night so I can vouch for the strength. The wind itself was terrifying. I didn’t sleep at all wondering if the next gust was the one to blow us off the top. Thankfully, those builders knew what they were doing. But, pay attention to the weather forecasts. When the winds are strong enough to close the roads thru the mountains, it’s going to be a rough night on top of the mountain!! (Side note ...closed roads means no hikers so we hiked down & saw zero hikers. Which lets you know it was NOT ideal hiking weather)
The propane heaters & blankets kept us extremely warm...don’t worry about being cold at night... I packed warm PJ’s unnecessarily.
The downside? The food. It was horrible..inedible even. And I’m not picky about food but for the price of over $100/person/night...they are definitely ripping overnight guests off. Any food they cooked was disgusting...cornbread, cookie/brownies/biscuits/pancakes...all amazingly bad. The canned food (peaches, beans) was ok. I know it’s “limited supplies” but surely those llamas can haul in some Bisquick or Hungry Jack mix occasionally. I’m not expecting gourmet, but to have to send back most of the food they brought us (yes, you eat in your cabin still which is another ridiculous thing I won’t get into), is just sad. It’s better to not even offer it if you’re going to have to throw it all away in the end.

So, my takeaway....hike the mountain when you know the weather is good.
Stay at the lodge if you want to pay a lot of money to sleep on the top & hike down the next day.
Don’t expect to be fed well. Bring backup.
Best scenario? Hike up & down in one day. You get the views, the accomplishment, and save lots of money
The mile markers really need to be verified b/c think they under estimate the distances.
It’s steep. It’s long. It’s dangerous at points.

But the views are amazing!‬

‪Worth the hike all the way to the lodge if you start early.

All the way up are views left and right so you will need a large memory card if you are taking a camera.

The hike isnt really difficult, just long, its relaxing if you are able to take your time.‬

‪This was the highlight of my visit to the Smokey Mountains. Hiked to the summit of Mount LeConte via the Alum Cave Trail. First 2.3 miles of the hike is interesting and only of moderate difficulty. It includes hiking along a cascading river and seeing Arch Rock, Inspiration Point and Alum Cave Bluff. The next 3.2 miles was strenuous but is where things get really good. Spectacular views along the way and even better when reaching Clifftops and Myrtle’s Point. Mount LeConte Lodge is located at the summit and provides overnight rustic accommodations but needs to be booked in advance. Make sure to do this hike on a clear day to fully appreciate. It took 8 hrs to do the round trip hike although I spent an hour at the summit. Rather then hiking up and back Alum Cave Trail, another option is to hike up the Trillium Trail past Rainbow Falls and down the Alum Cave Trail if you can coordinate a means of transportation. ‬

‪Most popular hike in the smoky’s. The trail is difficult. We started at alum cave parking lot at 8 and it was
Already full. The hike to alum cave was moderate with great sights including the arch and inspiration point. The caves offered another scenic stop. The hike up to mount leconte was more challenging it was rocky and
Wet with very steep inclines. Steel cables help you climb up amd prevent falls on rocks. This is not
For the faint of heart or those not in good shape. Once you get to the lodge there is a store. The dining is closed to day hikers. From there head up to one
View points for amazing top of the Mountain View’s. We had lunch before going back. The way up was fairly quiet but down was packed full of late day hikers and a lot of trail congestion. Leave early to have some peace and solitude before the crowds come.‬

‪Genuinely the worst mountain I’ve ever climbed. The views are awful because there’s nothing to see but trees, and the highest point is just a stupid stack of rocks in an area covered in trees so you can’t even appreciate the view from the top. Climbing up and down this mountain was the most wasted 7 hours I’ve ever had the displeasure of living through.‬

‪Our group of eight hiked from the Alum Cave Trailhead to Mount Leconte and back in 8 1/2 hours. Our party had five children (ages 7,9,9,10, and 14) and 3 adult women. I would consider the adults moderately fit and 2 of the youngest children were non-hikers. Our final mileage was around 11.5 miles.
We stopped for short breaks often and ate a picnic lunch at the lodge. The trail was steep in places but well marked and maintained. The terrain varied quite a bit and often looked worse than it actually was. There are several stretches in slippery or dangerous spots with cable rails to hold onto. At no time did we feel our children were in an unsafe situation. We had read reviews with varying degrees of concern for children’s safety and weren’t sure what to expect. Our kids knew to stay with the group and stay on the trail at all times. Any school aged kid who can listen and follow instructions can do this! I’m not recommending it, but one of our 9 year olds wore Crocs with no socks or heel strap for the entire hike.
We were well prepared with our own snacks, packs and water for the hike up. There is cold potable water available for refilling into your own container at the lodge. The lodge also sold a few souvenirs, supplies, and snacks. A sack lunch was $12. There was no bottled water available, but you could buy a Gatorade packet to add to your own container. Be sure to take the additional half mile Cliff Tops loop from the lodge for more incredible views of the mountains.
None of the terrain was extremely challenging in itself, but the length and altitude combined with our fatigue made it strenuous. At the end of the day, we were all feeling a huge sense of accomplishment in addition to sore feet and legs. This experience and the life lessons of determination and perseverance were priceless!‬
