Rainbow Falls in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

A nice picture of Rainbow Falls in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, during a hike last year. The water falls 80 feet and makes rainbows on sunny days. The hike is moderate to difficult, about 2.6 miles from the trailhead. The trail continues another 4 miles to the summit of Mount Le Conte. Check the Park web site for more details.

About Carrie Waxler

I've worked for Gatlinburg Falls since March 2011. Lived in TN since 1996. I have now hiked Mt. LeConte three times. I've been on every trail that leads to the top. The last one we hiked up the Boulevard. I have walked my first 2.7 miles on the Appalachian Trail. Only 2176 miles to go. I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail when my children graduate. I also love lake kayaking on Cherokee Lake and Douglas Lake. We take our kayaks camping to middle Tennessee as well for river kayaking. I love talking to guests from the places I've visited or lived. Brings back many good memories. I love to be where people are having fun.
