I would recommend this for anyone wanting to escape and enjoy the beauty of nature and the peacefulness of feeling you’re on top of the world.
We will continue this family tradition as long as we can, and we are so thankful for the wonderful Park workers and Volunteers who make it possible.

This area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is a perfect place to unwind, enjoy a picnic, or explore the beauty of the stream that courses along the picnic area.

Many exhibits of early mountain homes, nature hiking trails, water falls, and even a very unique drop water mill with the mill wheel parallel to the creek.
At the end of the Roaring Forks Motor Nature Trail is a charming cluster of buildings called 'Ely's Mill' where you can see demonstrations of weaving, browse the antiques and shop for local products.

Love the area, the woods, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The falls were absolutely beautiful and it is a great place to get away from the big crowds you will normally find in the park in peak times.

The trail starts out meandering the river which had many opportunities to stop and look at the beauty of nature (many tiny waterfalls going over the boulders).
We have been on many National Park trails, and we thought Alum was one of the best maintained popular trails we have experienced.

Before entering the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, a stop at the Noah “Bud” Ogle self-guiding nature trail offers a walking tour of an authentic mountain farmstead and surrounding hardwood forest.
The Roaring Fork Historic Nature Trail is a beautiful scenic drive through the forest with several interesting stops along the way such as historic cabins, mills, churches, and cemeteries.

Coming down the peak we were wrapped in a cooling mist, and distancing ourselves from the other hikers, we found the experience truly magical...setting sun, mist, nature sounds...the lasting impact of such a momen...

Perfect early morning hike to get your heart rate up, see nature and get close to one of God's great creations.
It's pretty strenuous but the Parks service has done a great job on the trail by putting in all the natural stairs - it seemed like I must have hiked up 1000+ stairs, so this is quite a strenuous hike.
