Northrup Falls Trail at Colditz Cove State Natural Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Colditz Cove is a beautiful state natural area located near the community of Allardt, a couple of miles off of TN 52. It is best known for the beautiful Northrup Falls, but it also has some tremendous rock overhangs that line the cove on both sides of the waterfalls.

To get a decent view of the waterfalls, you don’t have to descend down into the cove itself. However, the trail down into the cove winds through rock gardens and underneath bluffs, loops behind the waterfall itself, and is worth the extra energy."

"This is a cool hike to a cool waterfall. Leave the trailhead and head to the rim of Big Branch gorge. Grab an early top down view of Northrup Falls. From there, descend into the canyon, cruising along clifflines and rockhouses. Reach Northrup Falls and view the pourover from many vantages as it dives off a rim into an enormous rockhouse. The trail takes you behind the falls and down the Big Branch canyon, passing more geological marvels. Finally, the hike curves atop the gorge rim, passing above Northrup Falls one more time before returning to the trailhead." Read more
