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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Hen Wallow Water Falls. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Laurel Falls and Cataract Falls. The adventure continues: hike along Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Chimney Tops Trail, stroll through Grotto Falls Parking, and explore and take pictures at Newfound Gap Road.
