This is not your typical waterfall. Located at the end of Roaring Fork Nature Trail, this can be viewed from your car. During the winter, you can still see this, even though the road is closed. From Gatlinburg, head out the East Parkway, and turn...More

Driving along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail, this is definitely worth stopping for a look. It's a waterfall, but mostly it's water dripping over rocks. Beautiful at any time of year!

Place of 1000 drips is a beautiful photo op on the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. The scenery is breathtaking and there are a lot of pull offs for hiking and pictures. During the dry season it can be only 10-20 drips but it's still worth...More
