Plants, flowers, and trees native to Western North Carolina dot the 53 miles of track that cross through the mountainside, tunnels, and 25 bridges of Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. Every season the landscape morphs into something new, sprouting brilliant wildflowers in summer and flame azaleas in spring. Ride between the rolling rivers, quaint towns, and valleys in a restored vintage coach, or book your family a first-class club car.
