Triple Falls Trail On Bruce Creek

I recently enjoyed a hike to Devil’s Racetrack along the Triple Falls Trail On Bruce Creek – a.k.a., Little Egypt – near Caryville, Tennessee. Only 1.8 miles out and back, it’s rated as moderately difficult with a rocky-trail and mud in areas. Despite spray-paint graffiti at the trailhead, there were many scenic views of different waterfalls along the trail, and an old wooden bridge upstream. After crossing Bruce Creek, the climb becomes quite steep with several switchbacks. It’s definitely worth the effort, though, as the panoramic views from the mountain top are wonderful!

I met a nice couple from Powell, Tennessee, on top of the mountain, and we hiked back down together. Along the way, I learned that Bruce Creek had been relocated to its present spot when the interstate was originally constructed.


Traveling on I-75 North from Knoxville, take exit 134 toward Cove Lake State Park. Turn left on Park Road. Turn left on Shelton Hollow Lane. Parking is on a small gravel area next to several large rocks, or along the road.



If you’d like a print from my hike, please visit my gallery at Pixels. You may select from several different print types, such as framed, canvas, art, metal, wood and acrylic. Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy the great outdoors!

      Thanks, Lisa! I’d seen the rocky mountain top from the highway, and was pleasantly surprised with the scenic waterfalls found along the trail. A nice hike 🙂
