Nail Tech Event of the Smokies
Great Smoky Mountains National Park

  Nestled in the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, you'll discover amazing attractions, outdoor adventures, plus shopping & restaurants in a quaint village setting known as Gatlinburg. This is the place to make memories your family & friends will be talking about for years!


At Traffic light #8 in Gatlinburg- take Historic Nature Trail till you see signs for "Roaring Fork Rd. Motor Nature Trail".

Go straight at the 3-way stop sign. Do NOT go UP the hill to the Park Vista hotel (left side of road). You'll pass a sign for Mynatt Park on your right. Keep going straight. Eventually it will become a one way road.

One way roads are narrow & steep in places; not recommended for RV's or trucks pulling trailers! 

  • picnic
  • hike long or short trails
  • scenic walk ways
  • waterfalls
  • streams
  • Appalachian settlers cabins
  • amazing views
  • see wildlife, including black bears!


    You will enter the Great Smoky National Park from Gatlinburg after Traffic light #10. Continuing straight over the mountains (about an hour's drive) will take you to Cherokee, NC.  Roads are very winding with hairpin turns & top speed is 35 mph.

   To get to Cades Cove, turn RIGHT at the Sugarlands Visitors Center & follow the road till you reach Cades Cove (about 45 minutes due to winding roads & max speed is 35mph).

   Townsend is located about 7 miles from Cades Cove & it's known as "The Quiet Side of the Smokies" for a reason. If you don't want all the traffic, trinkets & t-shirt shops, then THIS is the place for you!
