Maggie Valley is unusually situated as it is one of the highest valleys east of the Mississippi River, making its climate a true four season destination. At a base of 3200 feet in elevation with the surrounding mountains reaching above 5,000 feet, the valley boasts a climate that is typical of the northern new England states. Cool summers and snow in the winter make this southern town a choice destination for vacationers all year round.
MAGGIE VALLEY is at the southern terminus of the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway winds it’s way from here North all the way to Virginia and is truly one of the great touring routes in the country. Just past the end of the Parkway is the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in the country. With hundreds of hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail, the park is best accessed by foot.
