Coker Creek Falls Professional Review and Guide

"This easy waterfall walk starts at a small, remote picnic area and follows Coker Creek to a series of cascades also known as the Seven Sisters. The cascades fall in seven stages, the last of which is more of a prototype waterfall and is officially known as Coker Creek Falls. If you want to stretch your legs, the Coker Creek Trail offers more cascades amid scenic Southern Appalachian splendor.

The name Coker Creek, in mountainous southeast Tennessee, recalls history. This was once Cherokee country but was later settled by simple white farmers looking for their own piece of America. The agrarian way of life held sway until gold was discovered on Coker Creek. As it happened near mountain streams in North Georgia, gold fever swept through these Tennessee hills. Gold-crazed miners panning in Coker Creek provided much of the precious metal in the United States during that time."
