Skinny Dip Falls

Located along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina, Skinny Dip Falls is a 1 mile out and back hike featuring several small waterfalls with refreshing pools.

The trailhead is situated across the street from the scenic overlook for Looking Glass Rock. A very popular tourist destination, the parking lot fills early, with overflow along the street. Leashed dogs are welcome. No restrooms.

Second Falls

Located along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina, Second Falls is one of two waterfalls which can be enjoyed while hiking the Graveyard Fields Trail.

If possible, arrive early – this is a popular area which can become quite crowded with overflow parking along the street. Information placards include a map of the trail – study this closely, as a mix of trail spurs can become confusing – and, restrooms are available. Also, dogs are welcome on this trail but must be kept on a leash.

Hikers should come prepared with ample water, and expect to encounter mud on the trails. While it goes without saying that rocks can be slippery, so too are wooden steps and boardwalks – exercise caution. In summary, I really enjoyed my hike on this trail!

Return To Burgess Falls

On the Falling Water River, Burgess Falls State Park is centrally located between Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tennessee, with four scenic waterfalls cascading down over 250-feet.

An easy hike, the trail is only 1.5 miles out and back, and there’s an observation platform for viewing Lower Falls. Ample parking, restrooms, drinking fountain & convenient filling station for water bottles are available. It’s a popular tourist attraction, and free, thus visitors are advised to arrive early.

Sugarloaf Mountain Park

Following a hike at Benton Falls, I later found Ocoee Dam No. 2 – a hydroelectric dam along the Ocoee River, in Polk County, Tennessee, built between 1912-1913.

At the adjacent Sugarloaf Mountain Park, I learned that materials to construct this rock-filled crib-type dam had been quarried from a hillside across the river, with structural remnants of a railway bridge still intact.

Little Piney Creek

After reviewing my options and seeing no clear pathway to the base of Lower Piney Falls, I turned and decided to follow Little Piney Creek, with a low water line, back towards Upper Piney Falls. It was a good decision (though I later fell on my keister) and I was pleased to observe many beautiful sights in this remote gorge environment. This photograph highlights an area which was especially appealing, with unique geological outcroppings, shallow water, reflections, and sunshine streaming from around the bend.
