Rainbow Cave Falls & Blowhole Cave | Smoky Mountain Trails You Didn't Know About
Within the White Oak Sinks area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are four caves. We explored two in this video. The most popular cave is the waterfall cave, sometimes referred to as Rainbow Falls Cave. Water tumbles over the top of a cliff and disappears into the cave entrance. It can be quite impressive in early spring after a decent rain. The main footpath to Whiteoak Sink leads straight to the Blowhole cave. The Blowhole cave is surrounded by a metal grating frame to keep folks out. The name probably originates because of the cool breeze one feels coming from the cave entrance. This cave has signage indicating the Indiana bat (an endangered species) hibernates in the cave. While the Indiana bat spends its summer living throughout the eastern US, during winter hibernation the bat congregates in very few caves. This is one of them. Both of these caves were really cool to see and the White Oak Sinks area is beautiful to explore.
