Ramsey Cascades, Smoky Mountains National Park
For a while now I’ve been editing together a lengthy movie featuring many of the sights seen on my road trip last year. This is a small portion of it, showing some of the hike to Ramsey Cascades, one of (if not) the tallest falls in Smoky Mountains National Park. It’s a popular hike, but also one on which many novice hikers turn back – it’s a bit taxing, ascending almost 2,400 feet in four miles. The destination is quite worth the effort, though the views seen on the journey there are pretty good, too. I’ve hiked it twice, both times in the fall, and the colors are great if you catch them at the right time.
