These are the worst times to visit the Smoky Mountains

We love the Smoky Mountains in any season ... 

But some seasons are better than others!  Here are four of the worst times to visit: 


Because it's cold and gray

January - February 


Because traffic is awful 

During Rod Runs 


Because of the heavy crowds 

In the fall 

Because of the heat 

In the summer
