We made it to Bald River Falls for the first time this July!! Well worth the drive, its a beautiful location. There has been plenty of rain this summer so the falls was in full flow. Even better was watching the kayakers on the Tellico River which is on the other side of the bridge from the fall. If you are a waterfall lover this is an absolute must see. Its not my favorite or the most spectacular but it ranks amongst the best!! The good part is that if you have time and don't mind hiking there are quite a few falls in this area to see so it would be good to make a day of it.
Oh don't forget to drive just a little further up the road and see Baby Falls on the Tellico River. its only five foot but its in such a scenic location that its a must see. Plus kaykers like to go over these small falls.
