Spreading across 800 square miles of southern Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina, the nation's most visited national park offers acres of fall color. One of the most popular places to see the leaves and wildlife (including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and black bears) is Cades Cove, a broad valley at the northwestern corner of the park near Townsend, Tennessee.
