Great Smokey Mountain National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a huge park, covering 500,000 acres and stretching into two states – Tennessee and North Carolina. At this size, it’s an ideal spot for exploring nature, observing wildlife, and providing the opportunity to tour the space via car or on foot (or wheel, in my case). Wheelchair accessible options include a drivable loop, a motor nature trail, and a paved hiking trail to name a few. These options offer something for everyone, allowing you to enjoy the scenery and atmosphere no matter your ability.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a favorite wheelchair accessible destination because it allows wheelchair users to get out and explore nature with a free national parks pass. This free pass is available to U.S. residents with permanent disabilities.
