Need to Know
Right at the fork goes to base of the falls, left goes to a rocky overlook.
This pretty trail is short and steep leading down to the creek. It is beautiful down at the bottom by the falls.
The rock-strewn path becomes heavily shaded by the forest. The more you descend during this short hike, the more the green moss starts taking up residence over the small boulder fields that become the path. Closer to the creek, you'll catch a glimpse of one of the smaller falls and, around springtime, you may also see lots of mountain laurels in bloom.
At the base of the creek is Stinging Falls, one of the many lovely spots for waterfalls in Tennessee. The cove is quiet and very serene. The water from the falls tumbles into a swimming hole that is equal parts clear blue and green.
