Smoky Mountains-Alum Cave Bluff

Smoky Mountains-Alum Cave Bluff Professional Review and Guide

"Some hikes are busy for a reason, and this one has several, including highlights ranging from spectacular views to old-growth forests to a natural arch - rare for the Smokies - and finally to an overhang bluff with views of its own. If you time your hike right, you can enjoy these highlights as a less-crowded trek.

You can usually smell the sulfur in the air at the bluff. In winter, large icicles form at the top of the overhand and crash down when the air warms. Nature is constantly at work on the Alum Cave Bluff Trail."
