    Hundreds of miles of trails criss-cross the park and it would take years to explore them all. The Appalachian Trail cuts through the park and backpacking is by permit only due to limited space in the bear-proof sleeping shelters. Clingman's Dome is a nice hike (paved but steep) and there are countless waterfalls and streams to explore on other park hikes.
