Foxfire Mountain

We're motoring around the great Smoky Mountains this week for a family vacation. Our first stop today was Foxfire Mountain, located in Sevierville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The mountain has had its share of brushes with history. It had been home to an iron mine, a Confederate military camp and a private farm. Now, it's the home of Foxfire Mountain Adventures and offers a number of fun activities such as Zip Lining, Four wheeling, hiking and bear crawler tours. Foxfire Mountain Adventures boasts the highest rock climbing wall in Tennessee, the second highest zip line course int he country and the longest swinging bridge in the United States. We didn't do any zip lining because our youngest wasn't old enough to do it. We did, however, hike over the bridge to the waterfall. The entire area is peaceful and quite scenic. The prices for zip lining seem pretty reasonable, and the hike over the bridge will cost you around $20, but it's worth it.
