Where the name came from.
Although only two miles in length, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trail to Chimney Tops requires strength and caution. Nevertheless, due to the excellent views available from this trail, as well as abundant wildflowers, streams and large trees, many feel a hike up to “the chimneys” is well worth both effort and risk. By this logic, Chimney Tops trail has become one of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park’s most popular trails. Rhododendron is abundant in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and along Chimney Tops trail is no exception. Also common are a variety of wildflowers. In Spring, you can find Trillium and Hepatica. In Summer, Joe-Pye weed, Bee-balm, and Jewelweed can be found. Violets, Toothworts, and Foamflowers also grow nearby. On the trail to the Chimneys people rave about the yellow buckeye trees due to the age of these trees, their unusual leaf structure and the flowers which appear in May. A trek to Chimney Tops will make you understand why it is so popular.
