2023 Go Topless Day in the Smokies


Join Smoky Mountain Jeep Club as we blaze a trail thru the Smokies and celebrate Go Topless Day. We will meet at the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Townsend at 9:30am and be ready to pull out at 11:00am. From there we will travel thru some of the best scenery the Smokies has to offer as we approach the ever popular Cades Cove where there is a vast abundance of wildlife and beautiful mountains views . We then will convoy taking the primitive Parson’s Branch Rd, a true Jeep adventure with a mix of small water crossings and dirt, as we move on to tame the Dragon with it’s many curves. We will end our celebration of Go Topless Day with a leisurely drive thru the Foothills Parkway. Be sure to have a FULL tank of gas, bring snacks, drinks and a camera as you will want to save the memories of this ride as we GO TOPLESS with SMJC.
