Small Falls on Bruce Creek

Along The Trail


I photographed this small waterfall – approximately seven feet tall – while hiking along the trail to Triple Falls. Bruce Creek is strewn with boulders and provides visitors many scenic cascades.

You can discover a variety of different print types available with my photography, by visiting my shop at Pixels. Thanks!

Geological Interest

I shot this photograph downstream of Triple Falls, and was particularly focused on the interesting rock formations over and around which Bruce Creek flowed. If you’d like a print for your home or office, please visit my galleries at Pixels and Redbubble. Other items available, also. Thanks.

Waterfalls And Rocks

Bruce Creek


Visible in the distance are the second and third waterfalls of Triple Falls, located near Caryville, Tennessee. This photograph was taken on a recent hike – it’s now available on a variety of prints in my gallery at Pixels. Great for the home or office, or to give as a gift!

Waterfall Downstream

Sound of Water


Rough rocks line the gorge on Bruce Creek, located near Caryville, Tennessee, along the trail to an area known as Triple Falls. I photographed this waterfall downstream.

Triple Falls

Also known as Little Egypt, the scenic Triple Falls is located on Bruce Creek, near Caryville, Tennessee. In this photograph, rocks in the foreground provide a diagonal leading line into the image, and a series of wooden sticks & trees accentuate the depth. See prints available.

Beyond Triple Falls is a bridge leading up the mountain, to Devil’s Racetrack. However, if instead you elect to follow the river for approx. 1/2 mile, you’ll come upon this scenic, unnamed waterfall, as I did.

Triple Falls On Bruce Creek

Following recent rains, I decided that it was worth the sacrifice of wet feet & muddy shoes in exchange for the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of Triple Falls (a.k.a., Little Egypt), located on Bruce Creek, near Caryville, Tennessee.

To begin, there are more than three waterfalls along this one mile out and back hike. The “triple” component of its name refers to three primary ledges from which water falls, engineered many decades ago via construction which rerouted Bruce Creek, in order to accommodate the development of highway I-75.

For those hikers interested in a mountain-top view, the trail continues beyond the waterfalls to Devil’s Racetrack, along a very steep ascent with many switchbacks. Here are a few pictures from a previous visit to the top…

Planning a visit?

I arrived at Triple Falls before 7:30 a.m., and, to my delight, was the only person on site for the entirety of my nearly three-hour visit! However, if you happen to visit the area during nice weather on a weekend, you can expect to see several hikers along the trail. Parking is limited, with overflow along either side of Shelton Hollow Drive. It’s not a State Park and there aren’t any signs at the trailhead, nor restrooms or water. Instead, it’s marked by several boulders on your right. If you can look beyond some graffiti and discarded litter near the road, as well as traffic noise from I-75 (which dissipates with distance), you’ll certainly enjoy the hike!
