Hiking Spruce Flats Falls

Located in the Tremont section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, near Cades Cove in Tennessee, the scenic Spruce Flats Falls stands 30-feet tall and can be enjoyed by hiking a moderately difficult trail measuring two miles out and back.

There are several changes in elevation and rocky areas to traverse along the well-marked trail, so good hiking shoes are a must. Bears are sometimes present, though less so than crowds of people – it’s a popular spot to visit, so arrive early if you’d like to enjoy the area in a tranquil setting.

Presently, due to concerns regarding COVID-19, the park office and restroom remain closed. So too is the parking area, though a gravel lot directly across the bridge is convenient. Also, the plunge pool beneath the falls provides a nice spot to cool off – great for kids!


If you’d be interested in a print for your home or office, you can visit my gallery to purchase any of the following photographs. Each product is manufactured at one of 16 global production facilities and delivered “ready-to-hang” with a 30-day money-back guarantee.


Thanks for stopping by!

      That’s a good question – I’m not sure.
