A GREAT PLACE FOR SUMMER MISSION TEAMS!


Smoky Mountains National Park     
 
Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains - Hancock and Hawkins Counties offer some of the most beautiful, but poverty ridden areas of our nation. What a wonderful place for your church's volunteer missions team to spend time during the summer. You're only 70 miles from the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area of the Great Smoky Mountains. Plan one day to site-see before returning home.
