Upper Bailey Falls

Located in the Cherokee National Forest of the Smoky Mountains, near Greeneville, Tennessee, Upper Bailey Falls is a 30-foot tall waterfall in a slot canyon, with high rock walls set ten feet apart.

Following my visit to Lower Bailey Falls, I continued up a steep hillside and then back down a long, sloping rock pathway, to the top edge of the falls…


Though similar, the waterway leading to the plunge pool of Upper Bailey Falls is shorter in distance, the water is deeper and the sound of falling water more substantial. With cool temperatures of both the water and air, I opted against wading forward into over waist deep water. While both falls were beautiful, the imposing geology of higher, tilting rock walls added greater interest to Upper Bailey Falls – making it my favorite of the two.


To decorate an empty wall in your home, office, business lobby or cafeteria setting, please visit my gallery to review a variety of available print types – including framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, acrylic, wood and tapestry. There are other items to see, as well. Framed prints may be customized (print size, frame, mat, mat width, paper).
