Throughout the centuries, the  mountains have formed from sedimentary type rocks that have accumulated  as a result of gravel, silt, sand, and soil being deposited in what was  once a huge shallow sea. The layers turned to hard rock millions of  years ago that are now nine miles or thicker in places. Eventually, 200  to 300 million years ago, the continents collided to create great  pressure which formed the jutting rock mountains as they folded. The  mountain range now stretches 2,000 miles from Main to Georgia and is  referred to as the Appalachian Mountains. The Smokies are the tallest in  the Appalachian chain with heights that flow from 875 to 6,593 feet.
