Description

The Great Smoky thrust fault is the boundary of the Blue Ridge province. It places the Precambrian metamorphic rocks on top of the Ordovician Knox Group limestones. Near & within Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the fault is exposed in several erosional windows. Here at Tuckaleechee Cove, a small creek flows over the Precambrian rocks until it reaches White Oak Sink, where it cascades down into a cave. The Great Smoky Thrust can be seen behind the waterfall.
