  • Going to start this out with a cautionary note. Please wear good solid hiking boots; trails can be quite muddy and slippery. There are no rails, if you fall - it’s a long way down. I wouldn’t recommen...  more »
  • This is one of the most picturesque waterfalls I've been to. Very short hike but it is a pretty steep climb and it can be very slippery when wet or muddy. I was amazed at the people taking very small ...  more »
  • We went there in when it was raining at the beginning of July. This is a very tough and at times dangerous path to take to both the upper and lower falls, I wouldn’t try this without the right hiking ...  more »

  • Greeter Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Tennessee with a great swimming hole down below. It is about a mile hike to the waterfall that isn't difficult. Getting to the bottom of the falls is a bit of a challenge though. There is a metal spiral staircase that takes you most of the way down. Be sure to have good hiking shoes on especially if you plan to go to the bottom. Be sure not to miss upper Greeter Falls and the blue hole.
  • I found this place by accident when browsing Google maps. I was curious about it so my husband and I decided to give it a try. We were both pleasantly surprised. The hike to Greeter Falls is fun and exciting. The falls itself is gorgeous. I would recommend this hike and beautiful scene of nature to those who enjoy about a 5 mile and mildly difficult hikes. Be prepared to climb up and down some. Greeter Falls also has spots for rock climbing for those who enjoy it. Just make sure you bring your rock climbing permit.
  • Very nice, free falling waterfall that spills into a beautiful blue pool. Less than a mile of hiking on moderate trail will get you to this one as well as Broadtree Falls. There are several stairs along the loop, but it is a pretty easy walk for most. These pictures are from near flood level, so appear much muddier than normal.
  • Great hike! We saw upper and lower falls, then hiked on to boardtree falls. Beautiful!
  • My favorite waterfall in the state of Tennessee! Been there 3x and plan on more. Medium hike to the falls but well worth it. Asthmatic friend had no problem.
