Ozone Falls

At 110-feet tall, the picturesque Ozone Falls is located on the eastern edge of the Crab Orchard Mountains in Tennessee. When the water is low, as seen here, it vanishes underground in the plunge pool, reemerging a short distance downstream beyond a cluster of huge boulders.

This picture is somewhat deceiving, so I’ll explain. In the foreground, the dirt trail is actually a ledge and ends behind the greenery, at which point there is a 40-foot drop to the right. Though the trail may appear to wrap around the gorge behind the falls, it does not – that’s another trail down below.

A variety of fine prints and more are available in the following galleries:

I hope you’ll enjoy my photography – thank you!

    Stunning – it’s – exquisite. New fav-of-fav’s. I’ve never seen anything like this. Pure beauty. And the video! Love the sound! 👏♥️👏♥️👏 (Wondering now what it looks like in winter)🥰

      The winter months are certainly a change of pace – from what I’ve seen – with no green foliage present, and a usually greater volume of water flowing. In addition to dealing with generally slick surfaces associated with dampness and moss, mist in the air freezes on the rocks and can create significant safety issues when traversing the area. It doesn’t stay cold enough long enough to freeze the falls substantially, only aspects here and there. Have a great day, dear Robin! 🤗🌹
