This Waterfall Staircase Hike May Be The Most Unique In All Of Tennessee
Finding a good hike in Tennessee isn’t hard, what with our expansive and varied topography and long, lean stretch of land within state lines. Finding a GREAT hike, a memorable hike, that’s where there proves to be a challenge. You’ve possibly heard of Greeter Falls before, and we decided to take a deeper look at the popular hike and what makes it so beautiful and fun. Care to hike with us?
The Greeter Falls Loop and Greeter Trail is roughly three miles long, located near Altamont, Tennessee.
The moderate trail is fun for folks of all ages, as long as your whole group is aware of common hiking practice and expectations. Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area, its considered the best in the park.
We'd recommend you visit from March to October, with a HUGE emphasis on the latter. There's nothing like a visit to Tennessee during the colorful months of autumn.
You'll make your way down a spiral staircase in the middle of the woods (yikes!), which makes for a magical experience. If you're bringing Fido, make sure that he or she is comfortable with the trek up and down the stairs.
You'll make your way past multiple waterfalls which make for breathtaking views and a fabulous hike. Be careful of slick mud throughout the park, and if the metal staircase has a bit of condensation or rainwater you'll want to trek with care.
The wild and plant life in the park is stunning, making for perfect photo opportunities. The rock cliffs are insane, as are the old trees that crop up throughout your walk in the woods.
We can't get over how crazy this looks in the heart of our Tennessee wilderness — what a cool experience!
Greeter Falls is beautiful, and this three-mile hike is great for the whole family. We'll see you on the trail!
