Hike to Triple Falls AKA Little Egypt

Shelton Hollow Lane

Amazing hike and waterfall views near Caryville, TN.

Triple falls trail otherwise known as little egypt is known for its cooling waterfalls in the summer and fall and the beautiful views from the top of the mountain year round. Getting to it is pretty easy all you have to do is follow your GPS until you see a small dirt parking lot off the side of the road be careful where you park because it can be really muddy if it has rained recently. When you get to the trail it immediately runs parallel to the creek about half a mile up the trail you will see the first waterfall after that the rest are in a stair-step pattern in the rock. The 5th and last waterfall is the best for swimming and cliff jumping the water there is about 10 feet at the deepest. If you decide to continue the hike to the top of the mountain you will cross the river and start the steep climb to the top. From the bridge to the top it is about a mile and can get pretty steep at times so you need to be cautious when hiking up. When you finally get to the top it is a small clearing with rocks you can sit back and relax at.
