  • This is a must see. Love this place. Easy hike. This is what the smokies is all about. Get out of the towns and visit these places with falls and hiking trails.  more »
  • Flat, easy hiking trail! Beautiful waterfall!!! Well worth the drive to get to it. Lots of people brought tubes to go down the river.  more »

  • Beautiful falls and great picture location (if you have a bathing suit)! The falls are spectacular. It has great viewing angle and you are able to get very close if you walk across the water. The location is generally very crowded though so expect some other people to be there really no matter what time you are there.
  • The falls are absolutely worth the very easy walk in from the parking lot. My elderly family members were able to easily walk in and enjoy as younger people cooled their feet in the water. Equally beautiful was a majestic old oak reaching out over the river. Enormous!!
