Margarette Falls (CNF Trail No.189), Nolichucky District at Cherokee National Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Margarette Falls may be the most spectacular short hike in Tennessee. Within this 1.4- mile span, you will walk along a creek bed past small cascades, crossing the stream at times, and pass under the shadow of the imposing Cathedral Rock formation, finally arriving at a surprisingly tall and delicate waterfall, which will make you feel that you don’t want to leave.
This short, manageable trail follows West Fork Dry Creek past the impressive Cathedral Rock, to end at the picturesque and protected Margarette Falls. The falls are quite a good size and are tucked in between steep cliff s, giving a secluded feeling, although they are well frequented by locals. Keep in mind that this area was damaged by flooding and was slow to recover."
