This waterfall can be seen from a turnout on Laurel Creek Road (same as Little River Road) between Cades
Cove and Tremont Rd.
I really don't consider this to be much as a waterfall, more of a cascade in
my opinion. While the flow is large for the area, the drop is only 8-10
feet. Plumb gives it a 2-star but he must have been out of his mind that
The good part of this waterfall is that a hike is not required and parking is
available next to the river.
The waterfall is 0.2 miles west of Tremont Rd on Laurel Creek Rd or 0.4
miles from where the Townsend entrance road terminates at Little River Rd.
From Sugarlands Visitor Center, travel
westward on Little River Road and look for the turnout on your right 0.2 miles
past Tremont Rd.
To be honest I didn't take much time at this waterfall because I was
unimpressed. I think the picture above is about as good as any of West
Prong Falls. For the most part just use standard composition rules and
normal equipment like a
tripod and polarizing filter.
For a larger version of the picture above, go to the
waterfall wallpaper page.
