Continuing the account of Day 2 in the Smokies, featured in the last post...
After our drive down the five-mile Tremont road, which ends at the trailhead for Middle Prong Trail, we enjoyed a "picnic" lunch in our vehicle before beginning a short hike up the trail. The day was overcast, but the rain held off until we finished our hike.
The river from the bridge that marks the beginning of the trail
Some of the beautiful fall foliage remaining on the trees
The trail follows the river. These trees on the opposite shore caught my eye.
A look back down the trail, where Doug was busily shooting video.
A small waterfall just off the trail
A multi-level cascade just upstream from the previous waterfall
I loved the way this red tree was virtually the only spot of color in this bit of woods.
Hope you enjoyed this little hike with us. This is a great trail for an easy hike. The incline is gentle, and the scenery is beautiful. If you're ever visiting the Smokies, put this on your list of things to do.
