Hello and welcome! We are so excited you're here, and we hope you decide to explore with us. We are Andrew and Clarissa Butler, the husband and wife guiding team that make up Hiking Bear Guide Service. We have a great love for being outdoors and exploring nature, and we feel the best way to share that, is by helping others to experience it too. Andrew has vast knowledge and experience with hiking and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, having hiked over 1,400 miles to date. As stated in our latest announcement, we are now offering our services for the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. We are very excited to begin this new journey! When we're not hiking, we are exploring new places and always looking for the next adventure. #Neverstopexploring
We offer hikes for all 150 trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and have recently expanded our services to include the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. We can accommodate anything from a day hike, to a multi-day backpacking trip. You can choose from the easiest or the hardest trail, that part is up to you. We do ask that you choose a trail that is best suited to your fitness level, because our main objective is for you to have an enjoyable, memorable experience. If you do not have a specific trail in mind, call or message us, and let us plan something for you! We have provided a link that will give you details of each trail, including the difficulty rating. www.hikinginthesmokys.com
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is known for its diverse plant and animal life, and beautiful mountains that still hold remnants of their Southern Appalachian culture. You can find more pictures of the various treasures the park holds, in our photo gallery below.
Hiking is a wonderful way to connect with nature. It is proven to reduce stress and improve your mood. It's also an enjoyable way to exercise, while still having fun.
