Return To Stinging Fork Falls

Following my recent hike at Piney Falls State Natural Area – including Upper Piney Falls & Lower Piney Falls – I drove 10 miles to Stinging Fork Falls, located along the Little Soak Creek in Rhea County west of Spring City, Tennessee. I’d rate the trail as moderately difficult, especially following a heavy rain, with rocky surfaces, steep hillsides and wooden stairs in need of repair – watch your step!

On the trail, turning left to follow orange markers is a detour down the mountain to the Cumberland Trail. Don’t go that way. If you follow the yellow trail markers, you’ll arrive at an overlook – with a view that was only okay. Staying on the main trail – follow the white markers – you’ll eventually reach the 30-foot falls. Use caution: a few trees had fallen across the trail.
