Great Smoky Mountains National Park

107 Park Headquarters Road

Ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park.

Beautiful! Very dog-friendly which is great. This is the place to go if you want to see wildlife, especially elk! Every evening they congregate near the visitors center and they are quite the sight! We also saw many deer and a black bear. The dogs had a good time playing in the stream. This is a great park!

Loved this park! It has really beautiful and rugged trails but also very accessible trails for people who want to get out there even in a wheel chair. There are motor trails also. I've heard it gets ridiculously busy at certain times of year so be prepared for that. It wasn't so bad when we went in May.

Breathtakingly beautiful! I would highly recommend visiting any of the national parks, but in particular the Smokies. There are so many hikes and they vary in degree of difficulty, so there is something for everyone. It is also one of the best chances anyone will have to see a black bear in the wild. Wonderful place that I hope we preserve.

The driving experience on the roads are awesome. Nice views, well maintained roads and park. Breathtaking waterfalls. Colorful flowers. Very nice scenic beauty. Stay whose night and wake up early morning. Its heaven. Good place for hikers.

I strongly recommend going to the dome. It's a kind of long hike from the parking lot considering the incline, but I've seen children do it. From the dome you can see various regions of the national forest. When you're hiking down or up the paved road, you can take a detour on the Appalachian Trail. Everywhere around you is gorgeous! I strongly recommend bringing water.
