TN Posted in Tennessee February 23, 2016 by Meghan O'Brien The Ultimate East Tennessee Waterfalls Road Trip Is Right Here – And You’ll Want To Do It You may have seen our Middle Tennessee road trip on waterfalls, but how in the world can we forget the east side of the state?! Filled with ravines, rivers, mountains and hikers with a thirst for natural beauty, we really can't slough off this little piece of southern paradise. We've pulled together a solid Saturday of waterfall lovin' - right here. Cataract Falls J Stephen Conn / Flickr You can see Cataract Falls after a half-mile hike in to the Great Smoky Mountains. It's one of the easiest hikes in the area, plus? As one of the most commonly overlooked falls in the park, you're sure to have a quiet day in the forest. Baskins Creek Falls Sradke / Flickr Located on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, Baskins Creek Falls only takes a short hike before you're set for the view of your life. Make sure to go during autumn - the colors will drive you craaaaaazy for Tennessee! Grotto Falls National Park Service / NPS A twenty-five foot waterfall and a three mile trail? Not too shabby if you ask us! #4 on our list is a shoo-in for families with kids who are looking for just a slight bit of outdoorsy adventure. Rainbow Falls Wikimedia You'll follow the creek for the majority of the almost-three mile hike, but make sure you bring a solid pair of shoes! It's a rocky road (ha.) and is a bit more difficult for the tiniest of hikers. Abrams Falls Matthew Paulson / Flickr Although a short little waterfall (only 20 feet high!), it has an EXTREME amount of gushing water that is sure to put a bit of spring in your step - and some spray in your hair. Ramsey Cascades Dustin J Williams / Flickr One - just look at that picture up there. Really, just look at it. Great. Fantastic. But it comes at a price - the hike is a strenuous one, so bring a first aid kit, your best friend, and lots of snacks. So, East Tennessee. Do you feel like you’ve won? Because these are some of the most beautiful spots we’ve seen…leave your thoughts below!
