I visited Debord Falls at Frozen Head State Park, located in the Cumberland Mountains near Wartburg, Tennessee. It’s an easy 1/2 mile hike each way to see this 12-foot waterfall, which, depending on the season and recent weather events, can vary greatly as to volume of water. Fun for the entire family, dogs are also allowed but must be leashed.
Fine prints are available in my gallery at Pixels – great for the home, office, lobby or cafeteria!

I took this photograph on November 5, 2019, while hiking near Barnett Bridge at the Obed Wild And Scenic River National Park, in Wartburg, Tennessee. One of my favorite recent-pictures, it’s now available on holiday greeting cards for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.

I recently hiked to Upper Meigs Falls, an 18-foot waterfall located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. The trailhead – Meigs Creek Trail – begins at The Sinks, along Little River Gorge Road. It’s four miles out and back, and hikers must cross the creek on four occasions each way. Following rains when the water is high, it may be difficult to remain dry, and a walking stick or trekking poles are helpful implements.

I recently enjoyed a hike to Devil’s Racetrack along the Triple Falls Trail On Bruce Creek – a.k.a., Little Egypt – near Caryville, Tennessee. Only 1.8 miles out and back, it’s rated as moderately difficult with a rocky-trail and mud in areas. Despite spray-paint graffiti at the trailhead, there were many scenic views of different waterfalls along the trail, and an old wooden bridge upstream. After crossing Bruce Creek, the climb becomes quite steep with several switchbacks. It’s definitely worth the effort, though, as the panoramic views from the mountain top are wonderful!
I met a nice couple from Powell, Tennessee, on top of the mountain, and we hiked back down together. Along the way, I learned that Bruce Creek had been relocated to its present spot when the interstate was originally constructed.
Traveling on I-75 North from Knoxville, take exit 134 toward Cove Lake State Park. Turn left on Park Road. Turn left on Shelton Hollow Lane. Parking is on a small gravel area next to several large rocks, or along the road.

I recently enjoyed a visit to Black Mountain, located in the Justin P. Wilson State Park near Crab Orchard, Tennessee. Rising 2827-feet above sea level, the area offers hikers wonderful scenic overlooks as well as a geologic wonderland of massive boulders and cliffs. Connected to the Cumberland Trail, it’s a fun adventure for hikers of any age!

With camera in hand, I recently traveled to middle Tennessee to hike Black Mountain (more on that another time) and Ozone Falls. Situated in the Crab Orchard Mountains on the Cumberland Plateau, this waterfall stands 110-feet and is the 3rd-tallest in Tennessee. Following significant rainfall, the thunderous sound of crashing water echoed throughout the gorge, with a wind-driven column of mist surrounding the plunge pool.

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:
