The Elk of Cataloochee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
in the remote Southeast corner of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the
Cataloochee Valley. And since the National Park Service reintroduced elk into
the valley in 2001, wildlife lovers from all over the world have crossed the
Cataloochee Divide to see the beautiful creatures!
Itís And it's not just the sight of the elk that
will take your breath away. The bugling of a bull elk is a sound that you will
never forget, and can be heard for miles!
If you visit the valley, always keep in mind that the elk
are very large and strong wild animals. Do not approach, molest, or interfere
with elk movement and activities. Although the elk are equipped with radio
transmitters to monitor their movement, they are not tame. Always exercise
extreme caution and keep a safe distance away.
Although there is no lodging, the Cataloochee Campground is
a great to stay for an extended visit, and there are several backcountry
campsites as well. Reservations are suggested as the camps can fill up quickly!
