Episode 19 – Ramsey Cascades and the Museum of the Cherokee Indian

In Episode 19, we discuss the rich history of the Museum of the Cherokee Indian and its people, News From Around the Mountains, and our Spotlight Hike of the Week, Ramsey Cascades.

The Museum of the Cherokee Indian has been welcoming visitors for over 50 years.  This place not only will help dispel many myths about the Cherokee people, but you will also gain a larger appreciation for their culture, struggles, and triumphs over the years.  The museum offers permanent and rotating exhibits, so there is always something to see here.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for kids 6-12.  They are open 7 days a week and located right on Hwy. 441 in Cherokee, NC.

The Ramsey Cascades is an 8 mile roundtrip strenuous hike that will test you and especially your feet as you go over roots and rocks.  The 100 foot cascading waterfall completely worth it, so don’t miss it.  It is located in the Greenbrier section of the Smokies.  From Gatlinburg, take Hwy. 321 6 miles and turn right into the park.  After 4.7 miles you will reach the trailhead.  The trail is currently closed due to damage from a tree onto a footbridge, but it should open again very soon.
