Our second afternoon adventure led us to Sill Branch Falls, which was along the same road as Pine Ridge Falls on Clark’s Creek Road. This road was found off of Highway 107 in Unicoi County, Tennessee. The trailhead was right off the side of the road.
Every time we got back on the path, we headed back down towards the water again. This is always where our adventures begin, always were the most fun is had.
The pictures below is where we spent a lot of our time Monday afternoon.
As I sat and admired the view, the thought of “I wonder what it looks like after a good rainfall” crossed my mind. When Jason and I first started going to all the waterfalls at the start of the summer, it was always after a good rain.
The trees in the Cherokee National Forest kept tugging at my attention today while Jason was exploring. Everything is so green, so tall over our heads.
Our hike also included some critters, some creepy crawlers . . . reminding us that you can never be too careful while out hiking.
I have to admit I stood back aways while Jason took a picture of the timber rattler, I’m not a big fan.
Overall it was a fairly easy hike to the waterfall, one that offered plenty of rocks at the bottom of the falls to sit and enjoy the view.
The GPS coordinates for the Sill Branch Falls parking area, which we plugged into our Garmin were: N 36° 7.812′, W 082° 32.156′.
