Beautiful clear green waters of Big Creek

The clear glistening waters of Big Creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park often display a shimmering green color. Is this the result of the angle of the sunlight or perhaps due to the mineral content of the water? I don’t know the answer, but it sure creates a delightful and unique attribute of this incredible mountain stream.

The Big Creek Trail is an easy walk up an old road and railroad grade. Popular spots along the way include Midnight Hole and Mouse Creek Falls!
