Western North Carolina
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited park in the country, and with good reason – miles and miles of backcountry trails, pristine mountain streams, waterfalls and soaring mountain peaks. One of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is home to rare plant and animal species and serves as a sanctuary for hundreds of black bears. Elk have been reintroduced into the park and are thriving in the Cataloochee Valley, a remote area of the Smokies accessible from Waynesville and Maggie Valley.
Along with appreciating the natural beauty of the area, you can also glimpse into the past at the many preserved historical landmarks and see how southern mountaineers created their own way of life in the Smokies – a culture that is still very much alive and well in communities surrounding the park.
During the rut in fall, male elk bugle to attract females and to challenge other bulls. Elk once roamed the southern Appalachian mountains and elsewhere in the eastern United States. They were eliminated from the region by over-hunting and loss of habitat. The last elk in North Carolina was believed to have been killed in the late 1700s. In Tennessee, the last elk was killed in the mid-1800s. By 1900, the population of elk in North America dropped to the point that hunting groups and other conservation organizations became concerned the species was headed for extinction.
A primary mission of the National Park Service is to preserve native plants and animals on lands it manages. In cases where native species have been eliminated from park lands, the National Park Service may choose to reintroduce them. Reintroduction of elk into Great Smoky Mountains National Park began in 2001 when 25 elk were brought from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area along the Tennessee-Kentucky border. In 2002, the park imported another 27 animals.
Elk are large animals! Females can weigh 500 pounds and stand nearly as tall as this pickup truck. Males can weigh as much as 700 pounds!
Warning! Elk are large animals--larger than the park's black bears--and can be dangerous. Female elk with calves have charged people in defense of their offspring. Males (bulls) may perceive people as challengers to their domain and charge. The best way to avoid these hazards is to keep your distance.
