GROTTO FALLS PARKING LOT - MARKER #5

     For all you hiking fans this is the first real hiking trail you will come upon. This hiking trail will take you to Grotto Falls or on up the Trillium Gap trail that ends on top of Mt. Le Conte. The first 1.3 miles are through a virgin forest of hemlock trees to Grotto Falls. The walk to Grotto Falls is fairly easy, as the trail climbs only 520 feet along the way. The trail is shaded by large American beeches, silver bells and maples. If you are an avid hiker don't stop here only but proceed on up this 4.0 mile trail to the summit of Mt. Le Conte. This trail rises about 3,400 feet through more hemlock, and into red spruce and Fraser Fir. So relax and enjoy the journey and all of the beauty and splendor of this trail.
