Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the few remaining places in the eastern United States where black bears live in wild, natural surroundings. Approximately 1,500 bears live in the Smokies, and inhabit all elevations of the park. Bears can measure up to six feet in length and a typical male weighs about 250 pounds, though a few over 600 pounds have been found in the park. Black bears are excellent tree climbers but are also capable swimmers and can run up to 30 miles-per-hour.
