Twin Falls of Gee Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Twin Falls is hidden in the Gee Creek Wilderness. This rock-rimmed, 1,000-foot deep defile seems another world from the rolling hills just a few miles west. First, you pass an old mine and towering stone cliffs. The world gets wilder the deeper you get. Finally reach 15-foot Twin Falls, spilling into a deep, translucent pool, perfect for a hot summer day.
The Gee Creek Wilderness is one of the smallest federally designated wildernesses in the Volunteer State. The impressive natural beauty of this mountain gorge stands out in Twin Falls, the enveloping forest, and the exposed rock ramparts. Gee Creek flows between Starr Mountain and Chestnut Mountain. Despite this limited watershed, the waterway holds deep pools. Big boulders line the streambed. Cliffs rise from the stream bank. Ahead you will see out-of-place concrete structures, remnants from the Tennessee Copper Company, which mined iron ore for smelting mined iron ore a quarter-mile copper."
