I left Knoxville, Tennessee this morning at 5:30 a.m. and arrived at the trailhead for Spruce Flats Falls one hour later. Located in the Tremont section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, near Cades Cove, it stands 30-feet tall and can be enjoyed by hiking a moderately difficult trail of 2 miles out and back. I’ll add more photographs, soon. In the meantime, check out these prints in my gallery at Pixels.
P.S.: notice that I’m wearing a WordPress t-shirt 🤪👍
The tallest mountain located entirely within the state of Tennessee, Mount LeConte has an elevation of 6593-feet, with a trail that’s approx. 12 miles out-and-back. Start your hike early on a day with good weather, and rest on top of the mountain to enjoy some really spectacular views! Prints available. Enjoy the great outdoors!
It doesn’t take too much water to transform this often scant waterfall into a powerful roadside attraction. Located only 20-feet from a gravel road in the Tremont section of Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, it feeds into the Middle Prong Little River. Prints available.
This video was taken on my Adventure At Paine Creek, which details an extensive hike both up & down a gorge, as well as the rewarding discovery of a waterfall. This area is located in Dayton, TN, along the Laurel-Snow Trail on the Cumberland Plateau, and Paine Creek is an obscure creek feeding into Richland Creek. Prints available.
Prints available. Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area , on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, USA, Lower Greeter Falls is a beautiful waterfall that stands 50-feet tall and flows from Firescald Creek. It’s a short hike along a moderately difficult trail with elevation changes, rocks and mud, and includes a 24-step spiral metal staircase down to the falls – one of my favorite places to visit!
Situated along the Caney Fork, Great Falls are a set of three 30-foot tall waterfalls located in the 883-acre Rock Island State Park, on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. At the base, it’s almost like being in a rainforest, with moss everywhere. In order to stay dry, I came from across the river, with some creative rock hopping, though many people in the summer simply wade through waist-deep water to access this beautiful area. Prints available.
This is Eagle Falls, a picturesque 30-foot tall waterfall near Corbin, Kentucky, which feeds into the Cumberland River. It’s a moderately difficult 3 mile out and back hike to visit, and it’s also across the river from Cumberland Falls – making this a great two-for-one road trip!
Located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, at Cades Cove, Tennessee, Abrams Falls is 20-feet tall with a consistent volume of water. It’s a 5 mile out and back hike which is well worth the effort!
Prints available. Located on the Cumberland Plateau along the Blackburn Fork River, near Cookeville, Tennessee, this is the 75-foot tall Cummins Falls – one of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve visited.
