Narrative:The pilot's altitude was low during the approach to land and he stated that he did not realize that there was a hill at the approach end of runway 28. The nose gear of the airplane collided with the hill 120 feet short of the runway. The airplane slid down the hill and came to rest on the runway, approximately 30 feet beyond the approach end. Review of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport runway 28 information states "displaced threshold 339 feet" and "steep rise in ground 50 feet, from threshold east end of pavement". No mechanical or flight control malfunctions were reported by the pilot prior to the accident.
