: I know I may be stretching the limits of the friendliness

: streams?

: Any information would be greatly appreciated.

There are miles of public waters within the park,
Stop at a visitors' center at the entrance to the park
and buy a trial map. This shows all the streams and
hiking trails, including landmarks and distances.
Try the Little River above Elkmont campground,
or the Middle Prong of the Little River above Treemont.
In both cases, drive to the trailhead and walk upstream
a couple of miles to find some solitude. The streams
are extremely rugged and beautiful, but very, very
clear. Use stealth when approaching the many drop
pools or you will spook everything in the creek.

Good luck!
