Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail


After our Laurel Falls Hike the kids were pretty tired so we decided to let them sleep while we drove the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail.


This trail is a one way 8 mile loop and provides some great views of the park for perhaps those that are unable to hike. It also accesses a few trailheads and picnic areas along the way. I turned on the dash cam for our drive through and sped up the footage  so if you’d like to see what the drive consists of check out the video below.


At the end of the video you can see some effects of the wildfires, namely the burned out log cabins on the right side of the road. We saw a lot of this during our stay at The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It almost seems like the main fire in the remote areas of the park set many spot fires here and there possibly from brands being taken by the wind. Thanks for stopping by.
