Just off the Graylyn multi-use trail in William B. Umstead State Park, a fallen red oak tree that measures approximately 25 feet long and several feet high has been transformed into art. Jerry Redi and Randy Boni of Smoky Mountain Art spent a week using chainsaws to cut and carve depictions of animals, tree branches, and leaves into the wood.
Know Before You Go
Enter the park at the Crabtree Creek entrance and follow the signs to the Sycamore Road parking lot.
Once parked, follow the path up a short hill, past a sign for the Sycamore trail until you connect with Graylyn multi-use trail (roughly a quarter of a mile). Continue to the right, and after about a third of a mile on the Graylyn trail you'll find the fallen tree on your left.
