Indian Flats Falls (Great Smoky Mountain National Park)
On one of my recent adventures, I made it to Indian Flats Falls. However, the story doesn’t start there… Several years ago, my dad and brothers had a great idea to take a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the Benton Mackaye Trail. We would start on the eastern end of the park and traverse to the western end of the park and a little bit beyond. That trip netted me a beautiful sunrise atop Mount Sterling. Unfortunately, there was an injury that prevented us
from completing our trip. Maybe one day, we will go back.
That brings me to Indian Flats Falls. I have never been fly fishing, so one of my brothers asked if I would go this summer. Of course, the answer was Yes. We planned a several day hike and fishing trip near Tremont in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park with a night hike from Elkmont back to our campsite after watching the synchronized fireflies. Unfortunately, a bear decided it was going to block our way to the first night’s campsite and we walked several miles back out of the park at night. That was not before I spent a little quality time at Indian Flats Falls.
