  • Nice Falls! Easy to drive to. You don't even have to get out of your car. Covered bridge close by the Falls.  more »
  • Beautiful waterfall & drive. So glad we stopped. Well worth the time. Make sure to have a map. We forgot ours at the cabin & went based on memory. Ended up on a one lane dirt road on our way back to G...  more »
  • We drove the Cherohala Skyway from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains today. The weather was excellent and the mountain views spectacular. Near the Tellico Plains end we took a side trip to Bald River Fal...  more »
  • Wonderful little waterfall when there has been plenty of rain for the season. Even during the dry months or droughts, it still looks pretty. Some great primitive campgrounds on North River Road just to the north/west a few miles down the road.
  • Hard to find becase the Rangers in Cherokee National Forest have not posted useable direction signs. A few good signs would have been appreciated. Beautiful falls however.
  • Small, easy to get lost when gps won't work. GPS won't function that far out. That was stressful especially since it was dark. Ha ha. VERY narrow roadways and VERY curvy. Pretty tho.
  • Easy access to a full-on view of a spectacular waterfall. Drive over the bridge and park in one of the 15, or so, parking slots on the right. Walk back onto the bridge for some memorable views. Be wary of the auto traffic as you snap your pictures (Safety First) Heads up: The parking slots stay full during peak seasons making for a highly congested area.
  • Absolutely amazing pictures. Swimming is FANTASTIC when temps are at or near 100. There is something about swimming in the water fresh out of the mountains. Take a small car for the road out and parking. No modern style bathrooms out there.
