This is road side and can be seen very easily. My husband and son wanted to see it up close so they became adventurous and actually crossed the creek.

Meigs Falls is perfect for those who are looking to enjoy the beauty of the Smokies without leaving the comfort of their car. Located roadside on Little River Road, simply look for the pulloff alongside the brick wall near the Sinks. NOTE: this small waterfall can become much more impressive after a heavy rain.

If your passing by, stop and look, take a few pictures and move on. The falls is across the river buried back in the woods, but visible from the highway. As many who have tried to hike it, it's just not worth it. A good zoom and a tripod would help with better photos. Stop if your driving by, but... More

Pull off to view. Water in main creek was low so we could have traversed it to get to the falls but we didn't. I hear its risky when water levels higher. Great site for family or folks who aren't able to walk far to see nature's beauty.

We were tired after hiking the day before so we thought this would be a nice, easy pitstop on our way out of the mountains. It is pretty to see, but far off the road. It would be nice if there was a foot bridge you could cross to get closer but its impossible.

Meigs Falls is easy to miss as it sits back off of the road on a curve half way down River Road towards Caves Cove, but if you spot it, please do yourself a favor and stop. The natural beauty of the falls is amazing and they provide a great backdrop for memory-making photos.

This beautiful waterfall can be seen along the road from the Sugarlands Visitor Center to Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee. You don't even have to get out of your car to enjoy it, but you will want to.

As you are driving Little river road, make sure you are paying attention as you could drive by this roadside beauty. There is plenty of parking right in front of this waterfall, just be careful pulling back out in traffic. No hiking necessary so its good for all ages.

The falls are easy to see, but also easy to miss. They are right off the road and of you have a good camera you can take pics from there. Don't Blink while you drive Little River Road or you'll miss it.

Meigs Falls is just a little ways past the sinks on the left hand side of the road as you are heading towards Cades Cove. There is ample space to pull over and view the falls from the road so this probably the easiest waterfall for you to view in the Smokies.
