Return To Benton Falls

Located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, inside the Cherokee National Forest, the Chilhowee Recreation Area is home to Benton Falls.

Driving 7 miles up the mountain along Oswald Road, several scenic overlooks provide excellent morning views –

It’s $3 parking for a day pass, where visitors can enjoy bicycling, camping, fishing, hiking, picnicking and water activities. And, there are picnic tables, drinking water and toilets available. Dogs allowed.

From the trailhead, hikers can enjoy views of the scenic 7-acre Lake McCamy, including a quiet beach and clean water for swimming.

Continuing to Benton Falls, it’s a 3 mile out and back hike along a heavily trafficked trail of mostly hard-pack sand, with some rocks.

When it was time to depart, I once again enjoyed expansive views along the drive down the mountain –
