Here are a few photographs from trails I’ve hiked in the state of Tennessee –
Located along the Little Soak Creek in Rhea County west of Spring City, Tennessee, Stinging Fork Falls is a picturesque 30′ waterfall in a gorge with a deep, refreshing plunge pool.
The trail to the base of the falls connects with the Cumberland Trail, including a few areas with stairs. Following rain on the day before, I would rate the hike as moderately difficult, given that most surfaces were damp and very slippery. Proper footwear is strongly recommended!
This was my second hike of the day, following a stop at Ozone Falls – more on that another time.
Along the trail, I had the distinct pleasure of sharing the hike with a Jersey Girl who wore a fern in her hair – nice to meet you, Sue 🙂
Here are some scenes I photographed at Stinging Fork Falls:

Located on the Falling Water River in Tennessee, Burgess Falls State Park is noted for its natural beauty and four waterfalls that cascade down from over 250 feet in elevation. A moderately strenuous 1.5-mile (round trip) trail along the edge of the gorge provides hikers with ample viewing opportunities, though, during my visit, one of the observation platforms was closed for repairs, as was a stairway leading to the base of Lower Falls. That said, it was nevertheless a very nice hike filled with compelling landscape scenery – highly recommended! And, a drinking fountain and restrooms are available, as is a convenient filling station for water bottles.

Located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the Lynn Camp Prong Cascades provide a beautiful resting area for hikers along the Middle Prong Trail. If you can’t visit the area, you can still enjoy this beautiful waterfall on a print in your home or office! Come see a variety of print types available in my galleries at Pixels and/or Zazzle.
Hope to see you soon!
This photograph in Tennessee highlights cascades preceding the 40′ high Lower Piney Falls, which empties into a tall, narrow gorge without access.

Located in the Tremont section of the Great Smoky Mountains near Cades Cove in Tennessee, Spruce Flats Falls is a lesser-known though beautiful waterfall. It’s 30-feet in height, but measures 60-feet when connected sections are included.
A two mile (roundtrip) trail with helpful signage provides visitors with a scenic, albeit moderately difficult, hike, which includes elevation changes and rugged surface conditions. Here’s an example of what to expect –
Despite the need to remain attentive to ever-changing trail conditions, various sights along the way provided interesting distractions. Here are a few:
And a few more…
Finally, Spruce Flats Falls
The sound of distant running water grew more prominent as I increased proximity to Spruce Flats Falls. Turning the last corner along the trail, I was pleased to discover that I was the only person on site! For over an hour, I enjoyed the unobstructed sounds of nature and was able to take several photographs of the area – without people climbing around.
This all changed when, as I prepared to leave, the first of several groups of elementary school students on a field trip appeared. As is the case with many attractions in the Great Smoky Mountains, tourist destinations can become quite busy, so an early arrival time is recommended.
These pictures are available in my gallery at Pixels on a variety of print types:
