GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK

If only these mountains could speak, the tales this majestic mountain range situated deep within the Appalachian Mountains could tell. Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited National Park in America, covers a range of 500,000 acres of forest land situated in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. The beauty of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is displayed in its awesome waterfalls, cool mountain rivers, wildflowers, floral and fauna, and the glory of Fall as the tree leaves change to brilliant colors of red, orange, and gold. Autumn's pageantry of colors in the Smoky Mountains usually peaks in mid-October. In late spring and early summer, park visitors can take in the beauty of gigantic cascades of mountain laurel and rhododendron. Some 800 miles of trails thread the whole of the Smoky Mountains natural fabric - and its waterfalls, coves, balds, and rushing streams. Whatever your pleasure, Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers a respite getaway from everyday life.
