  • Great Smoky Mountains - Staggering Biodiversity in Americas most visited National Park

    48:04

    Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an American national park in the southeastern United States, with parts in Tennessee and North Carolina. The park straddles the ridgeline of the Great Smoky Mountains, part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a division of the larger Appalachian Mountain chain. The park contains some of the highest mountains in eastern North America, including Clingmans Dome, Mount Guyot, and Mount Le Conte. The border between the two states runs northeast to southwest through the center of the park. The Appalachian Trail passes through the center of the park on its route from Georgia to Maine. With 12.5 million visitors in 2019, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States.

    The park is almost 95 percent forested, and almost 36 percent of it, 187,000 acres (76,000 ha), is estimated by the Park Service to be old growth forest with many trees that predate European settlement of the area. It is one of the largest blocks of deciduous, temperate, old growth forest in North America.

    The variety of elevations, the abundant rainfall, and the presence of old growth forests give the park an unusual richness of biota. About 19,000 species of organisms are known to live in the park, and estimates as high as an additional 100,000 undocumented species may also be present.
    Park officials count more than 200 species of birds, 50 species of fish, 39 species of reptiles, and 43 species of amphibians, including many lungless salamanders. The park has a noteworthy black bear population, numbering about 1,500.[38] Elk (wapiti) were reintroduced to the park in 2001. Elk are most abundant in the Cataloochee area in the southeastern section of the park.

    It is also home to species of mammals such as the raccoon, bobcat, two species of fox, river otter, woodchuck, beaver, two species of squirrel, opossum, coyote, white-tailed deer, chipmunk, two species of skunk, and various species of bats.

    Over 100 species of trees grow in the park. The lower region forests are dominated by deciduous leafy trees. At higher altitudes, deciduous forests give way to coniferous trees like Fraser fir. In addition, the park has over 1,400 flowering plant species and over 4,000 species of non-flowering plants.

    The whole trail is 3.5 miles (out and back). Its about one mile of down hill with a 35% grade in some places, keep this in mind for the hike back. Its a beautiful hike with an even more beautiful payoff at the end. Bring a lunch and plan to stay a while. My wife and I took about four hours to complete but we were in no rush.

    The Smokies represent one of the most diverse forests in North America, but shifting weather patterns from climate change and tree death from insect pests suggest large disruptions to plant and animal communities. In this webinar, Fridley and Stark discuss efforts to predict how regional climate change will impact the Park’s forests, focusing on studies of “microclimate”—that is, how steep topography and heavy tree canopies alter near-ground environmental conditions. The presentation will show how researchers have deployed sensor networks in the Park backcountry to model microclimate, and include the recent discovery that ranges of many plants may be more protected from climate change than regional models predict due to the buffering effect that trees have on below-canopy conditions.

    Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States with over 11 million visitors. The park encompasses 522,419 acres, making it one of the largest protected areas in the eastern United States. The park was established in 1934, and it is divided down its length by the Tennessee - North Carolina border.
    The name of the range is commonly shortened to the Smokies, due to the ever-present morning fog and low clouds.
    The main park entrances are located along U.S. Highway 441 (Newfound Gap Road) at the towns of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Cherokee, North Carolina.
    Great Smoky Mountains National Park has no entrance fees and the reason dates back to 1930s. The state of Tennessee stipulated that, no toll or license fee shall ever be imposed to travel the Newfound Gap Road.
    The park is almost 95 percent forested, and almost 36 percent of it is estimated by the Park Service, to be old growth forest with many trees that predate European settlement of the area.
    These ancient mountains provide ideal habitat for over 1,600 species of flowering plants, including 100 native tree species and over 100 native shrub species.
    A tour through the park offers visitors breathtaking mountain scenery, including panoramic views, rushing mountain streams, and mature hardwood forests stretching to the horizon.
    Over 2,100 miles of streams and rivers flow through Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
    Park is full of wildlife. Protected are around 65 species of mammals, over 200 varieties of birds, 67 native fish species, and more than 80 types of reptiles and amphibians.
    Black Bear is perhaps the most famous resident of the park. Biologists estimate approximately 1,500 bears live in the park.
    The largest is the elk, which was experimentally reintroduced to the park in 2001.
    Whitetail deer are very common and in addition, visitors most often see squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, foxes,…
    Coyotes are not often seen and just like bobcats, they are very reclusive.
    Great Smoky Mountains National Park has been called the Salamander Capital of the World. 30 salamander species are found in the park, making this one of the most diverse areas on Earth.
    About 800 miles of streams in the park support fish. The park boasts over 60 native fish species, including the brook trout.

    There are 850 miles of trails and unpaved roads in the park for hiking, including seventy miles of the Appalachian Trail. At 6,625 feet tall, Clingmans Dome is the highest point along the whole Appalachian Trail.
    Fifty-foot observation deck offers views for many miles over the Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia mountains on a clear day.
    Alum Cave Trail provides many scenic overlooks and unique natural attractions such as, Alum Cave Bluffs and Arch Rock. This trail leads to the Mount Le Conte, which is one of the most visited viewpoints.
    There are a great number of waterfalls in the park. Every year over 200,000 visitors hike well-worn trails to view Grotto, Laurel, Abrams, Rainbow, and other popular waterfalls in the park. Large waterfalls attract the crowds, but smaller cascades and falls can be found on nearly every river and stream in the park.
    If you love historic structures, Great Smoky Mountains National Park holds one of the best collections in the eastern United States. Over 90 historic structures—houses, barns, outbuildings, churches, schools, and grist mills—have been preserved or rehabilitated in the park.
    Being the most visited national park, traffic in the park may become congested at times, especially on the Newfound Gap and Cades Cove Loop roads. Most visitors are observed between July 1 and August 15 and in the month of October (especially October weekends).

    #TheGreatSmokyMountains are a #mountainrange rising along the #Tennessee #NorthCarolina border in the #southeastern United States. They are a subrange of the #Appalachian #Mountains, and form part of the #BlueRidgePhysiographicProvince. The range is sometimes called the Smoky Mountains and the name is commonly shortened to the Smokies. The Great Smokies are best known as the home of the #GreatSmokyMountainsNationalPark, which protects most of the range. The park was established in 1934, and, with over 11 million visits per year, it is the most visited national park in the United States.[1]

    The Great Smokies are part of an International Biosphere Reserve. The range is home to an estimated 187,000 acres (76,000 ha) of old growth forest, constituting the largest such stand east of the Mississippi River.[2][3] The cove hardwood forests in the range's lower elevations are among the most diverse ecosystems in North America, and the Southern Appalachian spruce-fir forest that coats the range's upper elevations is the largest of its kind.[4] The Great Smokies are also home to the densest black bear population in the Eastern United States and the most diverse salamander population outside of the tropics.[5]

    Along with the Biosphere reserve, the Great Smokies have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The U.S. National Park Service preserves and maintains 78 structures within the national park that were once part of the numerous small Appalachian communities scattered throughout the range's river valleys and coves. The park contains five historic districts and nine individual listings on the National Register of Historic Places.

    The name Smoky comes from the natural fog that often hangs over the range and presents as large smoke plumes from a distance. This fog is caused by the vegetation exhaling volatile organic compounds, chemicals that have a high vapor pressure and easily form vapors at normal temperature and pressure.

    #TheGreatSmokyMountains stretch from the #PigeonRiver in the #northeast to the Little Tennessee River to the southeast. The northwestern half of the range gives way to a series of elongate ridges known as the Foothills, the outermost of which include Chilhowee Mountain and English Mountain. The range is roughly bounded on the south by the Tuckasegee River and to the southeast by Soco Creek and Jonathan Creek. The Great Smokies comprise parts of Blount County, Sevier County, and Cocke County in Tennessee and Swain County and Haywood County in North Carolina.

    The sources of several rivers are located in the Smokies, including the Little Pigeon River, the Oconaluftee River, and Little River. Streams in the Smokies are part of the Tennessee River watershed and are thus entirely west of the Eastern Continental Divide. The largest stream wholly within the park is Abrams Creek, which rises in Cades Cove and empties into the Chilhowee Lake impoundment of the Little Tennessee River near Chilhowee Dam.

    Other major streams include Hazel Creek and Eagle Creek in the southwest, Raven Fork near Oconaluftee, Cosby Creek near Cosby, and Roaring Fork near Gatlinburg. The Little Tennessee River passes through five impoundments along the range's southwestern boundary, namely Tellico Lake, Chilhowee Lake, Calderwood Lake, Cheoah Lake, and Fontana Lake.

  • We found some awesome views of THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS!

    13:57

    We found some of the best views of The Great Smoky Mountains! On the North Carolina side just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Unbelievable sites of Maggie Valley, Lake Junaluska and Mile High overlook. This area is a great place to see Elk grazing. Balsam Mountain is located in a relatively remote part of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The secluded setting offers visitors the ability to enjoy a multitude of recreational activities without the crowds which are sometimes common in other parts of the park. Located at 5,310 feet elevation, Balsam Mountain's daytime temperatures rarely exceed 70 degrees F and night time temperatures may dip into the low 50's.
