Photographing waterfalls, I’m usually the first person on location, leaving home at 5:30 a.m. yesterday to drive 1.5 hours. This also means that I’m the one who knocks down all the spider webs across the trail, haha.
I visited the falls in November 2019 with a friend and her dog, at which time we had the area to ourselves, as did I yesterday. It’s a very peaceful place, and the pleasant sound of falling water echoes through the gorge and forest.
There are restrooms 7 miles from the park, at the Turkey Creek Overlook on the Cherohala Skyway, and a few separate scenic spots with picnic tables.
Print types available include canvas, framed, art, poster, metal, acrylic, wood and tapestry. Framed prints may be customized, also.
Thanks for stopping by!
Bald River Falls
The scenic Bald River Falls stands 90-feet tall and is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area. Located in the Cherokee National Forest of the Southern Appalachian Mountains of eastern Tennessee, this photograph was taken on a bridge from the road, a short distance from parking.
Located in Tellico Plains, Tennessee, the picturesque Conasauga Falls can be enjoyed from various viewing areas, dependent upon the volume of water present – filming from this downstream location entailed an arduous climb along steep gorge hillsides…but, it was definitely worth the view! Prints available.
Standing 12-feet tall, the scenic Baby Falls is located on River Road along the Tellico River, in the Cherokee National Forest of Tennessee.
Visitors can enjoy the falls not far from the parking area and restrooms.
The best viewing area requires a short but steep descent on a rocky hillside.
If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery at Pixels to select the print type which best suits your interests.

I recently had the opportunity to visit Conasauga Falls, a scenic waterfall located in Tellico Plains, Tennessee. At a distance of 1.3 miles out and back, the trail is rated as moderately difficult with a change in elevation of approx. 400-feet.
The trail has two switchbacks and no level stretches – it’s either all downhill, or uphill on the return. During my visit the creek was full, thereby reducing availability of access to other areas. However, if you wish to proceed downstream along the hillside, there is a minor path but it’s steep and very slippery – use caution!
The 3 mile road to the falls is a combination of paved and gravel, with areas where the pavement has deteriorated, and also deep potholes where the gravel begins. It’s not a major problem, but certainly good advice to drive slowly & steer clear of the hazards.
You can also read about my first visit to Conasauga Falls, last year.
The trail is well kept and easy walking, except toward the bottom where some careful navigation over/around rocks is necessary. Steps finish the trail, leading hikers to the primary viewing area.
Beyond Conasauga Falls and along a muddy embankment, I cautiously found my way to a lower elevation around a slight bend in the creek. I was greeted by the morning sun cresting over the highpoint of the Cherokee National Forest, casting a golden-green reflection from hillside foliage across the shallow water. What a sight!

Feeding into the Tellico River, another waterfall known as Baby Falls is conveniently situated less than half of a mile away. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent closure of most park facilities during this period, access wasn’t possible.
