Although drier conditions prevailed during my first visit to Lower Greeter Falls last autumn, recent rainfall provided for stunning views this time around! Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area of Tennessee, it’s a short hike along a moderately difficult trail with elevation changes, rocks and mud.
Flowing from Firescald Creek, Lower Greeter Falls stands approximately 50-feet tall, with access to the base of the falls requiring hikers to traverse a 24-step spiral metal stairwell. Easy enough, and the views are great! With no railing at the top, however, parents should closely monitor children.

When I was through hiking the trail to the Stone Door and several scenic overlooks, I returned to my vehicle and drove to another area of the Savage Gulf State Natural Area – that being, Greeter Falls.
From the trailhead I followed the Greeter Falls Loop, which passes by another waterfall, Boardtree Falls. Unfortunately, there was no falling water – not even a drip! Moving right along, I arrived at a spiral staircase leading to the base of Greeter Falls.
Despite a minimal flow of water, I enjoyed a peaceful time at Greeter Falls for over an hour, as I was the only person on site. These falls are two-tiered, consisting of a 15′ (not seen) and 50′ drop. Here are a few photographs –
