Favorite hikes?

Hello, heading up for the weekend and hoping to have some time to relax but also do a nice hike or two.

Staying close to almond and lake Fontana so we plan to do a hike near the lake in the Tsali recreation area, but would love suggestions on another good hike? Hoping for something that will give us some good views (not necessarily ONLY a walk in the woods). Have thought about taking the Appalachian trail for a few miles in and out near the NOC But not certain if it will offer good views or not since we wouldn't be going TOO too far.

Suggestions appreciated!

I recommend doing a little hiking on Lake View Dr.(aka The Road to Nowhere) or The Deep Creek Loop waterfall trail.

Fontana Lake is beautiful. We always stay over in Gatlinburg,TN but we drive to the lake at least once during our stay. The area is so pretty. There will probably be some good leaf color around the lake.

Enjoy your trip!
