The state of Tennessee has many wonderful areas in nature to explore, and I’m usually well-prepared for such adventures – proper clothing and gear, food and water, review of weather conditions, directions, well-rested, etc.. However, it’s not possible to plan for every contingency, as I recently discovered.
Traveling to Farner, Tennessee, my destination was Turtletown Falls. Though the small town lacked clear signage, I happened upon a Postal Carrier who provided me with helpful directions:
Across from the small Post Office, you’ll see an old school that’s closed. Take that road for a few miles until you see a brown sign with an arrow pointing left. Turn there to get to Turtletown Falls.
After turning left, I drove for a mile or two, though was stymied by a one-foot deep stream across the dirt road. In a compact rental vehicle at the time, I wasn’t interested in getting stuck or stalling-out in the middle of nowhere. So, I reluctantly turned around and drove away; alas, no Turtletown Falls.
How About Bald River Falls?
Backtracking, I decided to visit Bald River Falls, a 90-foot falls which feeds into the Tellico River. Along the drive I photographed this interesting covered bridge:
