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.

We had to pick a date from the drop down list and none of them were even close to when we visited. So ignore the date listed. I believe this visit was in August of 2010. We decided we really really wanted to see Meigs Falls up close. My husband and I were 58 and 59 at the time and... More

Meigs Falls is located just past The Sinks if you're traveling Little River Road from Gatlinburg toward Townsend/Cades Cove (the pull-off will be on your left). You can get wonderful pictures from the parking area, especially with use of a tripod. I do not recommend trying to climb down the wall and wade across the river to walk up to... More

The falls are pretty and cool, but the only way to access it up close is walking a 3 mile trail from the sinks. If you don't hike, you can only see them from a pull off on the road. Very cool overall!

Having already hiked to Cataract Falls and stopped by The Sinks, Meigs was third on the list of waterfalls close by. Almost missed it. Slowed down and barely got a parking spot on the side of the road. Because it was across a river, it's hard to get up close. But it's free, no hiking and not much is blocking... More
