Unnamed Falls #2, Fiery Gizzard Trail, Tennessee

As you’re hiking along the Fiery Gizzard Trail in Tennessee, you’ll encounter a number of smaller waterfalls and cascades along the way. The Little Fiery Gizzard Creek has multiple different drops, and this is just one of the smaller, unnamed waterfalls along the trail. It’s big enough to be considered a waterfall, at least in my mind. This specific waterfall is probably only about 3′ tall, but it’s still very pretty. The whole hike is beautiful, and can be a short as 1 mile or as long as 24 miles one-way, I believe.

Directions:

  1. As you enter Tracy City along US-41, you should notice a sign indicating the Fiery Gizzard Trail/Grundy Forest.
  2. Follow the signs to the trail, where you’ll find a sign-in sheet and other information.
  3. From here, follow either the Fiery Gizzard Trail or the Day Loop Trail, which can both lead to this falls, though you’ll pass by different waterfalls along the way.

Accessibility: 7/10 (easy/moderate)
Height: 3′
Length of Hike: 1.8 miles round-trip
