Check out a pair of waterfalls at Frozen Head State Park, one of Tennessee’s finest state preserves. You will head up North Prong Flat Fork, in a richly wooded, richly flowered and richly geological vale. It is an easy walk to 12-foot DeBord Falls. You then head up steeper Emory Gap Branch to find 24-foot Emory Gap Falls diving over a rock rim onto boulders, then splashing into a plunge pool, bordered by a rockhouse.
