While this waterfall may not be Tennessee’s greatest waterfall, it certainly is in the running for best waterfall moniker. Named for its mother stream, Coon Den Branch, this 80-foot cascade discharges over an open rock face. At normal flows, the stream makes a slender descent down a crack in the face before widening at the base. Be apprised Coon Den Branch is a small stream, thus rarely has exhilarating flows.
