Potter’s Falls


Potter’s Falls is located in Morgan County on Crooked Fork Creek, a tributary to Emory River on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee.

Though parking is limited to a few spaces, it’s a rural setting and people probably park along the side of the road. I had the area to myself during my visit, but an abundance of spray-painted graffiti near the bridge, and a couple of rope swings, indicates its popularity. Potter’s Falls consists of two sets of waterfalls for visitors to enjoy.

Upper Potter’s Falls

Standing 18-feet tall and spanning the width of Crooked Fork Creek, Upper Potter’s Falls can be accessed within a short 100-foot walk from the parking area. The falls are beautiful, though graffiti is visible on both sides of the bridge. But, looking on the bright side, it appears that Bruce Loves Donna.

Lower Potter’s Falls

A short distance further downstream along an old forest road, hikers can access Lower Potter’s Falls. This is actually a set of two falls, standing 12-feet and 8-feet tall, respectively. It’s a scenic spot to enjoy the pristine beauty of nature, and to do so without distraction.

Prints & More

Each of these photographs are available as prints in my gallery. You can select from framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, wood, acrylic or tapestry. Also, framed prints may be customized.

Great to give as gifts, also – in the home, office, business lobby, hospital and/or cafeteria setting!

    • So nice to see you, dear Michele 🤗 and thanks for your thoughtful comments 💖 I plan to return, as I’ve read that there may be another waterfall 1 mile upstream, though must confirm. I do know, however, that a local retailer is making bank selling spray paint to kids 😂

      • You are most welcome. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos with us. 😍 They are so vivid, I can hear and smell the surroundings (sans paint haha). Enjoy your search and hopeful location of the next waterfall. 🌊
        “retailer” – probably. I love art murals, but graffiti can be so destructive and expensive to clean up. 😞

        • Yes, the paint has left its mark 😆 But, as noted, it was nice to learn that “Bruce Loves Donna”. Aww 🤪 Wishing you continued success on your writers retreat in Oregon❣️ Back in the Phoenix area, I think that the monsoon may have finally tapered off – my brother sent pictures of the flooding. Take care, sweet Michele 🌻

          • Indeed it did! 😉 haha Now that is a public display of affection.👫 Thank you, Phil, for your encouragement. 🙏🏼 Very kind of you. 😊 Yes, the needed rain has stopped. Hopefully there will be more. 🤞🏼 You take care too.
