The Sinks, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

"The Sinks" are an area along the Little River comprised of hydraulic rapids
and deep pools. Folklore tells of a logging train derailing here and plunging
into the Little River. They say it was never found because the bottom could not
be reached. In reality the bottom can be reached, but very strong downward
currents can easily trap anyone trying to find it.
