Great Smoky Mountains National Park Adventure

Elk Viewing at Cataloochee Valley

It's calving season for the Elk population of Cataloochee Valley, at small valley located in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They valley is easily accessible from Waynesville, North Carolina and a wonderful experience for our guests here at Brookside Mountain Mist Inn Bed and Breakfast.


The bulls, as seen above, "bugle" to alert their harem to danger or keep them from wandering off too far from the herd. In addition, they bugle in order to let other bulls know they are ready to defend their harem during the mating season in the fall. This is called the rut.
The Tourism Bureau, here in Haywood County, has produced an excellent video about this amazing part of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can see this video by clicking on this link:

While here viewing the Elk at Cataloochee, stay at our luxury Smoky Mountain Bed & Breakfast, Brookside Mountain Mist Inn. When you return "home" from your Cataloochee adventure, we'll have fresh baked treats awaiting you for a snack. Enjoy them with a glass of wine from our wine cellar or a fresh brewed cup of coffee from the Keurig in the Guest Service Room.

We just wanted to share one example of the adventures that await you in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Come for the scenery, stay for the adventure! Call us at 828-452-6880 to book your adventure today!
