Unnamed Falls #1, Fiery Gizzard Trail, Tennessee

It is fun to explore the Fiery Gizzard Trail. There are a number of waterfalls along the trail. Some of them have names, while others do not, at least not on the “official” map. I would say that maybe it has to do with being smaller waterfalls, but some of the named ones aren’t really any larger. This is the first fall I encountered along my hike that didn’t have a name, hence the title. I don’t think that I could get particularly close to this waterfall, though this may have been the best angle from the trail.
