  • A very beautiful, calming and therapeutic spot. Limited parking about 8-10 cars. Right off the road between Gatlinburg & Cades Cove. There are steps to trails upward and you can hike downward to the f...  more »

  • I love the Sinks but it simply amazes me at the number of people recommending you swim and/or jump of the rocks here. There are signs every where at the Sinks saying "NO SWIMMING" and more people have...  more »

  • Amazing! I have a bone disease that doesn't allow me to walk on gravel or rocky roads. This was perfect! Cement floor all the way to the viewing area and a bit more. I will be returning with my family every time we're here.
  • Best described as nature's waterpark. When in Gatlinburg, must make a stop here, especially for the kids. Very close to the road so don't need to hike a long way to get to it. If you are brave enough, you can dive into the water off the big rock formations.
  • Interesting spot, decent waterfall which is viewed easily not far from the parking lot. If your interest is in finding glamorous waterfalls - this one will not offer too much for you.
  • Great swimming hole with a waterfall. Some people even jump from the guardrail into the water,but this isn't recommended because of the many rocks hidden below the waterline.
  • Awesome place for swimming. Definitely worth stopping. Sinks was the best part in my whole trip there.
