Hiked part of the Trillium Gap Trail to the top of Brushy Mountain getting to see Grotto Falls and a spectacular view of part of the Smoky Mountains!. A worthwhile round trip hike of about 6.5 miles.

There is something here for everyone. Waterfalls, camping, hiking, auto touring, lots of animals to see. Roaring Fork motor trail is my favorite spot in the park.
