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.

Triple Falls AKA Little Egypt Reviews

This is a fun hike if you are a seasoned hiker. When I got to the parking area, people were getting out of their cars with dogs and children which made me to believe the hike would be easy. After you get passed the bridge it gets difficult and steep but the view is worth it in the end! The falls were beautiful and my friends and I had a great time. It took about an hour and a half all together.

Great little hike with rewarding view and fun at the falls!

My wife and I briefly stopped here as part of an Ohio to Georgia road trip. We only went up to the first two falls, so we unfortunately missed what sounds like the best falls. The underground tunnel looked pretty awesome but we had to skip walking through it as we did not bring the proper footwear and attire to get wet in the stream. A previous review was concerned about this being a racist area, however we only saw one racist remark among a ton of graffiti that was mostly just crude images of body parts. This is a public and secluded area, so any group of people can come and camp here. Also, if you hit a dead end after the first tunnel entrance, you are just at the first campsite! Walk up the hill to your left and follow that path up to the rest of the hike!

Schmad racist, confederate flags out the a** and seemed like a set up because the trail was a dead end, and next to rentals w mad confederate flags. Don’t go there if you’re black.

Takes a bit of caution climbing down to the topmost pool and cliff jumpers should be cautious but well worth it, and the also the hike to the top gets really steep really fast, but also well worth it
