Picture

Cataloochee Valley, on the North Carolina side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, showcases an 18th century local settlement.  The buildings are unrestored and open to the public.  They are scattered throughout the valley, enabling the visitor to make a full day of the trip.  While there, chances are that you will see elk, deer, wild turkey and black bear.  Elk were re-introduced into the Smokies several years ago, and the herd is multiplying.  Of course there are thousands of mountain laurel and rhododendron along with a huge variety of wild flowers.  Take a picnic and a hike while you're there and enjoy all the beauty nature has to offer..
