Deep Creek Loop Trail, Smokey Mountains National Park, Bryon City NC

     I am currently hanging out in Western North Carolina and I am very near the Smokey Mountains National Park.  It is the most visited National Park in the country.  One of the first hiking trails built in this park was the Deep Creek Trail.  I decided to do the loop.  This involves hiking up Deep Creek Trail for a little over a mile and then taking a trail over a ridge to an adjacent valley and following  the Indian Creek Trail back to Deep Creek.  It is about four and a half miles all together.  There are three waterfall along the trail and Deep Creek is a very popular tubing site.  There is a National Park campground at the trail head and several private campground just outside the park.
