Register now to reserve your spot. We can't wait to see you at beautiful GATOP Gardens!

We Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the Great Smokies.

Our Club members are passionate about hiking! Our missions also include education about the outdoors and advocacy for crucial conservation issues. In addition, we proudly maintain 102 miles of Appalachian Trail in the Smokies and Nantahala National Forest. 

Join one of our weekly hikes in the beautiful, rugged Smokies and surrounding natural areas here in East Tennessee. Try your hand at some high-elevation trail maintenance on the Appalachian Trail. Participate in conservation efforts to preserve our natural heritage.

SMHC offers adventure and fun for all kinds of people - like you. Join us!
