Posted by Darryl Payne in Smoky Mountains

For many people, autumn is a favorite time of year. The air is crisp and pure, and even though most of the leaves have fallen for the season, there are still plenty of reasons to head outdoors for some fun and physical activity. Here are a few suggestions to consider when making travel plans to the Smokies this season.

Take a hike – If you're staying in one of this area's Gatlinburg rental cabins, remember that Great Smoky Mountains National Park has dozens and dozens of hiking trails covering hundreds of miles. Be sure to check weather conditions for higher elevations first, however.

Bike Cades Cove – This popular 11-mile loop of historic sites in the national park is ideal for a bike ride. You can bring your own or rent a bike at a vendor near the loop entrance. Plan on anywhere from two to four hours to bike the loop, depending on your speed. The tour includes awesome views as well as historic churches and cabins.

Go for a picnic – Whether it's in the national park or a city park in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge or Sevierville, it's fun to pack a lunch, take a ball or a Frisbee and bring the family along for some good times out in the fresh air.

Go ziplining – There are several zipline outposts throughout the area, offering a variety of ways to enjoy some high-speed fun while getting great views of the local scenery

Go horseback riding – Take a tour of some of the area's most beautiful landscapes while riding a magnificent horse.
