Sugarland Nature Trail – Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Karen and I took a fun hike on the Sugarland Nature Trail, which is right behind the Sugarland visitor center.  We highly recommend this trail because it is very short, only 1.5 miles round trip with a small waterfall, Cataract Falls.  The waterfall isn’t the only thing that makes the trip worth seeing, it is a very good way to inform yourself about the biodiversity of the forest.  The trail was well maintained with a gravely path and lots of interpretive signs of the vegetation.  One good idea is to walk this trail first and then see how many of the trees you can spot on the next trail that you hike.

Cataract Falls is a 25ft waterfall that is not all that exciting, but it is worth going to see if you are already walking the interpretive Sugarland Nature Trail.  It is a good place to start and wet your appetite for all the other great things to see in the Great Smoky Mountains.
