Oconaluftee River Trail
- KathyApr. 10, 2021River trail
We thoroughly enjoyed our walk along this 3 mile round trip path. The path is clean and easy to use. There were spring flowers everywhere. A herd of Elk were within 20 feet of us. There are sign to not get within 50 yards of the Elk but it was obvious that the Elk were not paying attention to the signs. We stopped walking and they kept coming to right in front of us to get into the river. There are information signs written in English and Cherokee.
Because it is one of the few National Park trails that allow dogs there were MANY people with dogs but to us that just made it more fun. A road is also nearby, however the wild Elk made it SO special
