This hike starts at one of Tennessee’s iconic cataracts—Bald River Falls. The 90-foot showstopper is visible from the trailhead. You will then hike up Bald River Trail, entering the Bald River Gorge Wilderness. Reach the top of Bald River Falls and a grand vista.
Next, enjoy a ledge cascade, then visit Middle Bald River Falls, another ledge drop with a big plunge pool that divides the lower part of the cataract, dropping in chute fashion just below your viewing point. Additional rugged geological scenery can be enjoyed while on the hike.
