Just back from an amazing little hike in Greene County, Tennessee in the Bald Mountains -- up to Margarette Falls. The trail follows the stream and is generally an easy 2.5 miles roundtrip. There are a few places where I had to scramble up some rocks and cross the stream.
As you approach the falls, the left side of the valley becomes a sheer rock cliff.
Recent rains made for a deep stream and absolutely amazing waterfalls all the way to the mother lode -- the Margarette. The water cascades some 70 feet into the gorge.
The mist and light breeze off the falls made for a very enjoyable visit.
