White Erect Trillium
I once asked at the Oconaluftee Visitors Center where I could find Trillium. The answer, "Everywhere". It was likely the best answer at the time. I have found many trails that lead to Trillium beds. But Trillium wildflowers are not the only ones. The "Peachtree" quiet walkway has an abundant show of Fringed Phacilia. This tiny flower is often overlooked except to be seen as the beds as shown on the picture below. However a close up view will with your eyes is very worthy of your hiking endeavor.
