Gentry Creek Falls - Laurel Bloomery, TN

Gentry Creek Falls
Located in Laurel Bloomery, TN
This is a very nice waterfall that will take about 4 hours round trip to hike. This trip was my 2nd successful hike to the falls. I tried about 4 years ago on Thanksgiving, but ran out of daylight. I tried again about 3 years ago in early Summer and was successful. The hike is moderate due to the fact that there are a few obstacles you must climb toward the end. These obstacles include climbing over what looks like an old beaver dam. At the end of the hike there are rocks you must climb through to get to the basin. This last time was in July of 2008, the water level was a bit low so these pictures are a little different than the ones from 3 years ago. If you decide to hike these falls, be sure to wear shoes that you do not mind getting wet as you have to cross the creek about 15 times.
