Return To Hen Wallow Falls

With weather forecast to reach 60 degrees in Knoxville, Tennessee, I decided to wear shorts on a hike to Hen Wallow Falls, a 1.5 hour drive by car – forgetting that temperatures in mountain elevations are often much colder…whoops!

It was 34 degrees when I began my pre-sunrise hike of less than 5 miles out and back, along the Gabes Mountain Trail, through a hemlock and rhododendron (seasonal) forest. At 90-feet tall, I’d visited this waterfall once before, and soon recalled both the inclination and rough surface trail conditions.


If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery to select a print type to suits your interests.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Fantastic photography. The settings certainly look slippy and dangerous too.

      Glad you like it, Johnny & thank you 👍 Yes, it was quite slippery around the falls, and with mud/clay on the trail, also.

    I always take a sweatshirt or jacket with me when heading into the mountains, even during the summer. You can almost always guarantee at least a ten degree deference… Hope you stayed warm enough!

      Thanks Holly ~ yes, always a good idea. I warmed up quickly, though, once I got started 👍
