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.
Family-friendly places like Cades Cove and Clingmans Dome will thrill your kids. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Roaring Fork, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount LeConte, hike along Grotto Falls Parking, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Alum Cave Trail.
