Lower Lynn Camp Falls

Located along the Middle Prong Trail in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, in Tennessee, the 35-foot Lower Lynn Camp Falls is an easy 1/2 mile hike which parallels Lynn Camp Prong.

Turning on Tremont Road, the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont is 2.2 miles, left at the stop sign. It has a restroom and a small gift shop (maps, t-shirts, hats, etc.). This is where you would park if hiking to Spruce Flats Falls. Continue another 3.1 miles along a gravel road to reach the trailhead.

The Middle Prong Trail was originally a railroad bed used by the Little River Railroad & Lumber Company, based in Townsend, Tennessee, which was one of the largest commercial logging operations in southern Appalachia, in operation for 38 years until 1939, with 150 miles of railroad. Visitors can find more information available at the Little River Railroad Museum web site.

Immediately after crossing the river on a footbridge, the trail forks – stay to the left to follow the river, and watch for horse droppings (equestrians allowed). Depending upon what you have planned for the day, you might consider hiking 4.1 miles on the same trail to visit Indian Flats Falls.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed your visit. Thanks for stopping by!
