Cane Creek Falls

Located on the Cumberland Plateau near Spencer, Tennessee, in the Fall Creek Falls State Park, this is Cane Creek Falls. Standing 85-feet tall with an expansive plunge pool, hikers may access the base of these falls via the “cable trail”. Prints available.

In Pursuit of Gravity

Water cascades downward, over rocky terraces, racing to catch gravity. This photograph was taken on top of Bald River Falls, located along the Tellico River in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of eastern Tennessee. Prints available through ArtFlakes and ArtPal. Thanks for stopping by!

Cane Creek Cascades

Located in the Fall Creek Falls State Park, near Spencer, Tennessee, Cane Creek Cascades stand 30-feet tall and are easily accessible for visitors to enjoy. This photograph was taken in autumn. Prints are available in my online shops at Pixels and ArtPal. Thanks for visiting!

Lost Creek Falls

This is Lost Creek Falls, located on the Cumberland Plateau near Sparta, Tennessee. Sitting on top of a massive network of caverns, the waterfall mysteriously vanishes underground beneath the plunge pool. Prints available at Pixels and ArtFlakes. Thanks!

Black And White Waterfall

Water turns the corner and crashes down a rock-face located at Lower Lynn Camp Falls. This black and white photograph was taken in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, in Tennessee. Prints available at Pixels & ArtFlakes. Thanks for stopping by!

Soco Falls

I recently visited Soco Falls, a picturesque double waterfall located on the Eastern Cherokee Reservation between Maggie Valley & Cherokee, North Carolina. Visitors can hear the waterfalls from the small parking area, and it’s only a short 5-minute hike to an observation platform.

For a better view, the trail continues downhill to the base of the falls. It’s steep and rocky, with a constant mist in the air keeping the trail muddy, though several ropes have been installed to aid hikers during the descent.

Lower Greeter Falls

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.

Location

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.

Denny Cove Falls

Located in the South Cumberland State Park (30 minutes from Chattanooga, Tennessee, near Sequatchie) Denny Cove Falls is a picturesque 70-foot waterfall on the Denny Cove Branch. Driving two hours from Knoxville, my road trip into the wilderness also included a second stop at Foster Falls – less than two miles away!

Following directions provided through alltrails.com, I soon learned that there wasn’t access to the park via Dawson Springs Road, only several “No Trespassing” signs posted along private, rural properties. Instead, I found a marked entrance further north along US-41, an old gravel road with many deep potholes. Mine was the second car on site, and I was greeted by a family with two small children, as I walked ahead with camera in hand.

The nearly 3 mile out and back hike included diverse trail conditions, ranging from easy walking on hard pack soil through a pine tree forest, to cautious movements along an entirely rock strewn pathway. The trail is rated as moderately difficult, though, had the rocks been damp, it would have been more challenging. Fortunately, trail conditions were dry.

There are a few different trails in the park for hikers to enjoy. Nevertheless, and despite reading reviews suggesting that the falls are often busy, I had the place to myself for 1.5 hours during my morning visit – very peaceful.

Along the return, I met several other hikers on the trail – and, heard many other voices? Looking uphill through the trees at imposing gorge walls, I could see dozens of rock climbers – a popular recreational activity, accounting for the now full parking lot.

Prints for your home or office

I’ve added a variety of photographs to my gallery from my hike at Denny Cove Falls. Check it out and discover several different print types available – framed, canvas, metal, art, acrylic and/or wood. Thanks for visiting!

Lower Piney Falls

Lower Piney Falls stands 40′ tall, and, from the top, has a nice view of a high-walled gorge. There isn’t, unfortunately, access to the base of the falls. Located on the Cumberland Plateau near Grandview, Tennessee, it’s one of two waterfalls that visitors can enjoy – see Upper Piney Falls. Trails are well kept and relatively easy, great for families and/or dogs. Generally, a quiet spot.
