AGES 5 & UP
Hike the Trails at Ober
Having opened the summer of 2021, we offer Hiking at Ober Mountain! This activity will begin with a ride on our Scenic Chairlift*, up to the head of the trail. Our goal is to provide an introduction to hiking, full of adventure and learning for the whole family. The Trails at Ober offer guests a hike through the woods surrounding our 60 year old ski slopes bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The hike ranges from easy, rolling hills to short bursts of moderate, uphill climbs. You will also encounter many interesting features along your journey, including scenic photo ops, ponds, steps, and a bridge…even a wishing well! There are also several opportunities to rest and hydrate. Get up close and personal with wildlife and seasonal wildflowers all over the mountain.
Come experience the beautiful views from Mount Harrison, on foot, at Ober Gatlinburg!
