The Tennessee Trail That Leads To A Stairway Waterfall Is Heaven On Earth
Hiking in Tennessee is not only one of the cheapest activities in the state, but it’s also one of the most incredible. Not only will you have the opportunity to ooh and ah over the gorgeous state topography, but your camera will be working overtime as you seek to capture the beauty of Tennessee in a single handful of shots. If you’ve never experienced Tennessee’s gorgeous stairway waterfall, well. Make sure you’re ready. This one’s a doozy!
Winding Stairs Nature Trails and Park is located in Lafayette, Tennessee, and it's one of the city's hidden gems.
Truly, it's one of the state's hidden gems. Most folks haven't heard of this tiny little natural beauty, tucked away from the well-known national parks and state protected natural areas across the state. Great Smoky Mountains? We see you. But we need a change of pace...
...especially when this gorgeous and one-of-a-kind waterfall is at the end of the journey.
The Winding Stairs Loop comes in at just under two miles, a lightly trafficked hiking loop that features a gorgeous waterfall.
The hike itself is considered "moderate" by AllTrails, but is recommended for everything from trail running to birding, walking with your children or even just taking a solo hike.
Here you can see a historic shot of the falls, making for an incredible peek back in time. The photograph is undated but the historical relevance is starkly evident.
Can you imagine how otherworldly it must have been to stumble upon such a gorgeous sight? This is the kind of place that makes you feel small, the kind of spot that drops your jaw at the beauty of our great earth.
