Founded in 2007 in the Great Smoky Mountains, today American Hikes provides guided hiking excursions and multi-day expeditions in the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. If you are one of the ten million annual visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains and would like to venture more than the average 400 feet down one of the hundreds of miles of amazing trails you’ll find in the Smokies, you’ve come to the right place.


American Hikes offers a wide variety of experiences for the adventuresome and those who simply wish to dig a little deeper into Appalachia’s rich history. Excursions are offered each day, rain or shine and we do not have any age restrictions. So, kids grab your parents and lets go hiking!
