  • We stopped by on our way to Cade's Cove the day after a big rain. It was flowing! Beautiful little stop without any hiking which is great if you have mobility impaired people.  more »

  • We are in our late 20s and really liked this water fall because it was a different kind of travel to get to it. We brought our water shoes and hiked through the water for about 20 minutes to get there then 20 back. It is short but the only way to get to it is by crossing the river. Great adventure.
  • Nice place to visit. A little hard to find a place to stop and find a parking place
  • Good for photographers, a little bit far from the road and not easy for cell phone to have a good picture
  • Beautiful and the Yankees can't get to it! No one can come invade on your privacy.
  • Very close to the road. There is bridge and parking over the bridge. Quick stop and photo shoot. Falls itself very small but looks great to view from Road. Didnt make the trail that lead to the falls
