Here’s a tip for those hot summer days touring around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: the best lemonade is over in Mt. Sterling near the entrance to the Big Creek section of the Park.
It’s a bit of an effort to get to this lemonade stand, but it could be worth it, especially if you go on into Big Creek and hike the trail up to Midnight Hole. Head out of Gatlinburg going east on Rt. 321. Continue to Cosby, turning right at the stop sign. Keep on going, past the Cosby entrance to the Park. You will wander for about 15 miles on a curvy mountain road, eventually coming to a four-way intersection. Look to the left, and there’s your lemonade stand. To your right is the Big Creek entrance to the Smokies.
