Waterfalls

Waterfalls are ranked using my Waterfall Ranking System, which is based on my personal preferences.  I am only linking to waterfall hikes that I’ve visited since the start of my new blog in 2011.  I will keep adding to this list as I visit others.

    Just came across ;your site, very good

    Been to most of the E. Tn. falls and presently working on Panthertown NC. falls. I had the pleasure of naming Campbell and Savannah Falls, neither named after me. :)

    I am a retired Coast Guardsman, 76 yrs old, living in Johnson City, TN. I am a little slower but manage, with the help of friends, to get there.

    Next time down this way give us a yell. Also see rattreks.com.

      Thanks, Dave! I’m very familiar with Rat’s blog. Give me a shout the next time y’all are in Dennis Cove, and we will get out and hike. I live close to the A.T. there.
