The Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located just six miles from Gatlinburg via Highway 321 East. Also, known as Big Greenbrier by the local old-timers, this watershed is considered by many scientists to be the best example of a cove hardwood forest on planet Earth. The entrance road to the cove is a narrow paved and gravel road which follows along the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River.
Several popular trailheads are found in Greenbrier such as Ramsey Cascades, one of the tallest and most beautiful waterfalls in the National Park. You’ll also find Porters Creek, a favorite for spring wildflowers.
Greenbrier offers two picnic areas with table and restroom facilities. To reserve the covered picnic pavilion at Greenbrier, contact Recreation.gov.
