"Fall Creek Falls Tennessee" Fall Creek Falls State Park by member007

Good Hiking

Fall Creek Falls State Resort Park is one of the most spectacular recreation areas in America. Its waterfalls, cascades, streams, gorges, timberland and an unmatched variety of recreation facilities and activities make it one of the most popular parks in the Southeast. Fall Creek Falls is one of the highest waterfalls east of the Rocky Mountains, plunging 256 feet into a shaded pool at the base of its gorge. The park's other falls, (Piney, Cane Creek and Cane Creek Cascades), though smaller, are just as impressive.

The oak forest that covers most of the park gives way to tulip poplar and hemlock forest in the gorges. Mountain laurel and rhododendron are abundant throughout the park, as are other plants and animals.

The park is located in Bledsoe and Van Buren counties, 11 miles east of Spencer and 18 miles west of Pikeville. You can get there from Highway 111 or Highway 30.
