  • We have visited Bald River Falls many times. Our favorite is when the temp. drops enough for the fall to freeze top to bottom.  more »
  • This was our first visit and even though the road is a little narrow and windy it is well worth it. The road runs along the water and the area is beautiful. It is a stunning water fall and great photo...  more »
  • I never tire of seeing Bald River Falls when I'm in East TN visiting family. The road to get there is very curvy, but once there, all you have to do is hop out of your car and start snapping pictures....  more »

  • We hiked up the waterfall then realized there was a path afterwards! We did it the old fashion way. Beautiful place! We spent almost 2 hours hiking, taking pictures and just taking in all the beautiful nature surrounding us. A wonderful place to go!
  • One of the most beautiful places I've been, I've visited many times. There's great hiking and fishing above and below the falls. You can catch farm raised Rainbow Trout and wild small mouth bass. There are no Facilities close so pack it in. There's a wonderful hike above the falls past the picnic area. Wading and swimming are nice also above the falls.
  • Love these mountains and beautiful falls.grew up going to these mountains.took my kids to these mountains and now I'm taking my grandbabies.so beautiful.
  • Cool place to put the kickstand down for a min when trolling the Cherohala Skwy. Worth the short jog off the skwy.
  • Easily accessible and very beautiful waterfall. Swimming Pond below as well as one up top near the edge if you're up for moderate rock climbing up the right side. Follow the moderately difficult path on the left side to a nice little picnic area at the rear of the falls. While you're there follow the Cherohala Parkway towards North Carolina, a favorite with bikers, for some great Ridgetop views, but beware as it can be very desolate after sundown...VERY!
