Driving directions:

Located right beside Newfound Gap Road in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this small waterfall is a popular stop for tourists. It’s on the left side of the road 3.35 miles north of the entrance to Smokemont Campground. About 18 feet high and on a small stream, it’s usually not remarkable. But if you catch it right after a heavy rain, it’s certainly worth a look.
