Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Kephart Prong Trail ('prong' means a bend in the river) is a four-mile roundtrip hike that crosses the Oconaluftee River six times, with narrow footbridges provided at each crossing. The trail itself is an old road-bed with broken and exposed pavement at the beginning of the trail and eventually leads to a backcountry shelter.
