The park offers hiking, observation platforms and a chairlift from the visitors centre to near the tunnel entrance. Today we walked down the hiking trail and took photos of the tunnel and surrounding scenery.
Afterwards, we headed to the nearby township of Kingsport, Tennessee
The town is relatively small compared to locations we have visited. Despite this it has an amazing road system connecting it to the major highways and large hotels such as the Marriot and Hampton Inn near the town. Some of the shops were empty and we wondered if, like rural Australia, regional towns in the United State have been feeling financial pressures.
We headed back to our Koa camp ground for a coffee and snack before dinner. Tomorrow we hope to set off early to head back toward the coast. Our destination tomorrow is Charlotte, the capital of North Carolina.
