The best map I found for the Smokys:

National Geographic Great Smoky Mountains National Park Trail Map #229 (http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/product/399/392/246.html)

There are only a couple maps.

Smokies Park map which is not to detailed except for trail profiles.

USGS map which probably haven't been updated for a couple years.

The National Geographic is the official AT trail map for the Smokies. The newest edition actually has mileage info in between shelters and gaps. And has more detailed on side trails. It has a red band on the front.
