Red Fork Falls

Posted June 9th, 2007 by Jeff.
I visited the lovely Red Fork Falls in Unicoi, TN, near Erwin. It's amazing, and is about 80 feet in height.
Use Google Maps, or use my better directions:
Take Interstate 26 to exit 32 (old exit 23). It's the Unicoi exit. If you're heading east (coming from Johnson City), take a left off the ramp. If traveling west (coming from NC), take a right. You will immediately come to a stop sign, where you will turn right. This is TN-173. You will drive about .7 miles, where you should see TN-107 on the left. Turn there. Go about 7.3 miles, where you will see a brown wildlife viewing area sign. Turn right on the immediately following paved road. Turn right at the fork shortly thereafter. Drive no more than a mile and you will see a small gravel area on the right, along with a tree painted with a red blaze. This is where you will park.
Take the trail straight ahead, cross two creeks, then follow the trail downstream to the right. There are 3 or 4 different parts to these falls, but the largest of which will come first. It's about a 10 minute hike from the parking area.

    This is a beautiful photo of a waterfall. I went to the UP of Michigan this summer and hunted down 26 different Falls. It was great fun.
    We visited Abrahms Falls this summer in August. It was my first time there and I absolutely LOVED it. I live in Michigan, but I plan on doing it again. I have a photo of Abrahms almost identical to yours.

    It deserves a venue of its own. A mural sized reproduction. Thank you for sharing it.
