Ramsay Cascades Professional Review and Guide
"Reaching one of the Smokies’ highest and most scenic waterfalls requires a long but not too taxing day hike. The trip into this well-watered, rhododendron-rich watershed is made all the more special by one of the park’s most impressive big forests.
Ramsay Cascades must have an identity crisis. Over the years it’s been consistently spelled inconsistently, with either “sey” or a “say” at the end. Southern Appalachian family names had a way of evolving over time—this is another example.The 1.5 miles, on a very gradual forest road, makes a nice stroll without going all the way to the waterfall."
