    Johnny Molloy
    "These often overlooked low flow waterfalls flow down a tributary of the Hiwassee River. A short path passes by rockhouses and bluffs along Left Prong en route to visiting a series of slide cascades. The uppermost part of the falls is on Lowry Branch. The quick hike should be included as part of any adventure in the Hiwassee River corridor. Lowry Falls is a series of continuous cascades rather than a single identifi able waterfall. Lowry Branch and Left Prong are tributaries of the Hiwassee River, one of Tennessee’s better-known paddling and trout fi shing destinations. Those who make it to Lowry Falls are passersby who happened to see the trailhead sign on TN 30, or those staying at the nearby Quinn Springs Campground, all part of the Cherokee National Forest. The hike begins on an old double-track road, quickly leaving the highway." Read more
