Great Smoky Mountains National Park
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. Encompassing over 500,000 acres of forest land, Great Smoky Mountains National Park is situated in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. Autumn's pageantry of colors in the Smoky Mountains usually peaks in mid-October. Some 800 miles of trails thread the whole of the Smoky Mountains natural fabric - and its waterfalls, coves, balds, and rushing streams.
