Hike Grotto Falls Trail

Tennessee Trillium Gap Trailhead

Added by Seth Berry

Walk behind a 25-foot waterfall, and spot plentiful wildflowers during the spring.

This is an intermediate hike along Trillium Gap Trail. There are four stream crossings on your way to the falls, as you hike through an idyll, often wildflower-sprinkled landscape. Late spring is best for catching blooms. Once at the waterfall, you can walk behind the cascade of water.

This is a popular hike, so make sure to arrive early. In winter, you will need to access this hike via the Rainbow Falls Trailhead, which adds another 3.4 miles to this hike.
