Great Smoky Mountains National Park


As a scavenger hiker, you search for treasures like a boulder bigger than
Winnebago, bear tracks that were left in wet concrete, rusted remains
of a Model
T Ford deep in the forest, a giant natural rock house that pioneers used as a
shelter, a hidden ancient Cherokee Indian path that was used for hundreds of years, a 120
year old cabin that you can explore inside, mysterious “midnight hole”
a deep
pool of water below a powerful waterfall!!!


Earn 10 points for each Treasure that you Find! Depending on the number of points achieved you will be officially “certified” as a CITY SLICKER, PIONEER SCOUT OR FRONTIER EXPLORER!!!

“The LaFevres, who have lived all over the Midwest and have always been avid hikers, were thrilled to discover the hiking opportunities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park after John’s employer transferred them to the area.”

“We soon discovered how much more enjoyable a hike can be when you know what natural and historic treasures can be found along the way,” said Kat.

“According to the LaFevres, their book is the first and only interactive hiking guide to
the Smokies.”
