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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Sinks and Metcalf Bottoms Picnic Area. Escape the urban bustle at Charlies Bunion and Spruce Flats Falls. When in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, make a side trip to see Collins Creek Picnic Area in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, approximately Great Smoky Mountains National Park away. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Porters Creek Trail, contemplate the long history of Walker Sisters' Cabin, identify plant and animal life at Quiet Walkways, and explore the activities along Townsend Wye.
