A Wondrous Diversity of Life

Great Smoky Mountains National Park contains some of the highest mountains east of the Mississippi River, but it's the ease of access that makes this national park the United States' most visited.
Take a break from Great Smoky Mountains National Park with a short trip to Cataloochee Valley in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, about 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, take in the awesome beauty at Clingmans Dome, cruise along Newfound Gap Road, and trot along with Sugarland Riding Stables.

To find maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read our Great Smoky Mountains National Park online trip itinerary maker.

Expect a daytime high around 74°F in October, and nighttime lows around 51°F.
