Wild Flowers and Waterfalls

Grotto Falls in the SmokiesIt is Spring again in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and along with spring comes green leaves, beautiful wild flowers, black bear cubs, high flowing waterfalls and much more. This is a great time of year to explore the trails of The Smokies. The wild flowers are in full bloom. The streams, rivers and, waterfalls are at full capacity due to our abundant spring rainfall. Female black bears are out to show off their most recent offspring.
Keep your distance if you are lucky enough to see these though. Black bears are a non-aggresive species but, you don’t want to get in between a mother and her cubs. If you want to see a wonderful wild flower display,
take a walk along The Porter’s Creek Trail, Located in the Greenbrier area of the National Park. A very beautiful waterfall, that is an easy 3 mile round trip, is Grotto Falls.
You will find this trail off of the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. As far as the bears go, just sit back and relax on the deck of your Smoky Mountain Cabin, be quite and, see what comes walking your way.
