Rockhouse Creek Falls

Though sometimes dry, I visited Fall Creek Falls State Park following a period of rain, and was pleased to enjoy Rockhouse Creek Falls, standing 125-feet tall and feeding into Cane Creek Gorge. Guests may visit my shop to find a variety of prints available.

Fall Creek Falls

Following a period of rain, the clouds broke and sunshine filtered into the gorge and onto the 256-foot tall Fall Creek Falls, as seen from a nearby bluff. If you’d be interested in a print or other items featuring this photograph, then visit my gallery at Pixels. Thanks!

Falling Water Falls

Heading home from Georgia, I traveled northwest of Chattanooga, Tennessee, to visit the 110-foot waterfall called Falling Water Falls.

I found a parking spot – one of six available – as I arrived, and was soon at the overlook above the falls. It’s a very short hike along Little Falling Water Creek, on top of the Cumberland Escarpment, and the view is expansive! It is, however, difficult to see the waterfall except by looking down over the edge – probably a great location for photography using a drone.

Photographs

I asked two local hikers (Logan, Austin) about access to the base of the falls, though quickly decided against climbing down a rope affixed to the side of a cliff.

Hemlock Falls Trail

I recently had the opportunity to enjoy a visit to the 90-foot tall Hemlock Falls, located near Trenton, Georgia, in the Cloudland Canyon State Park – on the western edge of Lookout Mountain – on the Cumberland Plateau. The park has a $5/vehicle entrance fee.

Leaving Knoxville, Tennessee at 5:00 a.m., it was a 2 hour drive and I was the first person to arrive at the trail. By the time I returned to my vehicle, however, the parking lot was full.

Suggestion

If you arrive early, come prepared with the correct fee: an envelope with 16-quarters + a $1 bill isn’t easy to pass through the slot in the fee-deposit box. D’oh!

During my hike, I met several interesting people – a Pastor and his wife from Knoxville, a couple traveling on vacation from Ohio, and an individual from Marietta, Georgia, who was filming the canyon using a drone.

Despite being only 1.1 miles out and back, visitors must traverse 600 steps into the canyon. I was pleased that the trails were in good condition, and the hike wasn’t too difficult. For those in need of a rest, however, several benches have been conveniently situated along the trail.

Killdeer Arch

Part Six – Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area

Back on the trail, I hiked up and down various changes in elevation, crossed a few small streams, and also experienced a close encounter with bears! Finally, as I neared the point – a scenic overlook – at which I’d turn around, I saw a sign for the “Killdeer Arch”.

This natural arch provides passage through a tall sandstone cliff along the Upper Canyon Trail, offering vertical clearance of 8 feet by 20 feet wide.

Circle Bar Arch

Part Five – Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area

Moving right along, it wasn’t long before I spotted this sign. Though I hadn’t heard anything about an area referred to as “Circle Bar Arch”, it was only 100 feet uphill from the trail, and the Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area seemed to be full of interesting surprises.

Indeed. When I reached the top I was greeted by a broad sandstone wall, filled with intricate contours, crevices and arches.

A Rock Face With No Name

Part Three – Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area

After taking in expansive views of the Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area from an overlook, I was back on the trail to continue my adventure.

Though there are often signs posted in parks, and names of locations identified on maps, most of nature’s beauty is simply there – down a ladder, through a narrow gap between rocks along the trail, and around a corner.

And so it was. I turned a corner along the Upper Canyon Trail to behold a substantial rock face, unnamed. Wonderful. Beautiful. However one might convey this point of reference, it was a pleasant walk along a sandy trail with tall cliffs overhead. And, perhaps most of all, intricacies carved by nature into the sandstone were quite spectacular!

Here are some photographs of the area:

These photographs are available in my gallery at Pixels. If you have an empty wall at home, why not enjoy the great outdoors, indoors? Many options to select!
