Meigs Falls / Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Meigs Falls Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is abound with the two ingredients essential for waterfalls—ample rainfall and an elevation gradient. In the Smokies high country, over 85” of rain falls on average each year. During wet years, peaks like Mt. Le Conte and Clingmans Dome receive over eight feet of rain. Large waterfalls attract the crowds, but smaller cascades and falls can be found on nearly every river and stream in the park.
