Hiking and Outdoor gear in WNCNear the Southern tip of the Great Smokey Mountains in Western North Carolina… Near the beginning of the historic 2100 mile Appalachian Trail… Nestled quietly in a primeval forest of waterfalls and soaring mountains, in this ancient sacred home of the Cherokee, a settlement was built, now called Franklin, NC. Decades later people rediscovered Franklin as a place to enjoy the natural beauty and reconnect with nature.


In 1994… in an effort to service this new generation of explorers THREE EAGLES OUTFITTERS was built. Starting as a ‘small’ store with a ‘big’ vision… A unique land deserved a unique store. An outdoor store, an outfitter to fully service the Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, the section hiker, the camper and the explorer. Three Eagles knows the difference between Crocs and Gaiters, walking sticks and trekking poles, freeze dried meals and baked beans, high tops and low tops. LEARN MORE

  Many have asked is 441 open thru Great Smoky Mtn Nat Park. Yes 441 is open from Cherokee into Gatlinburg. However, all US park services are closed, ie campgrounds, restrooms, and info centers. this applys to Stranding Indian Campground here in Macon Co, as well. There are cones blocking parking to trail heads but I can't see how you still can't hike. Just know you are on your own, no rangers are on duty. I rarely see a ranger in the park anyway. Standing Indian Trails and the AT are of course open, if there is noone working how could you police trail entrances
