You will also find items for those families who participate in the National Parks Passport Program and those folks can have their passports "stamped" in the store and buy souvenirs from the Great Smoky Mountain Park.
Both trails are nice, but I prefer the Cataract Falls trail, especially for families with small kids since it is easier and mostly flat with wide, clear trails!
