If you ever find yourself traveling through east central Tennessee along I-40 and are itching to see just one awesome Tennessee waterfall, I have a perfect one for your consideration. Ozone Falls, is a very picturesque 110 foot waterfall with wide amphitheater like cliffs surrounding it on both sides. The water drops into a beautiful green pool. I read on the official website, that scenes from the “The Jungle Book” were filmed here. Even better, it is only 4 miles from I-40……with minimal hiking! It’s not officially a “roadside” waterfall, but it is the next best thing! Read more

Epic Tennessee Waterfall Trip

2015 has gotten off to a slow start for me. I am usually very busy in early January at my job, and this year was no exception. After going weeks without seeing a waterfall, living vicariously through the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts of others, I was dying to get out. On the weekend of Friday 1/23 and Saturday 1/24/15, I was able to do just that. I love the waterfalls of my home state of North Carolina. While I spent some additional time in 2014 exploring South Carolina and Virginia waterfalls, I have vowed to spend more time in 2015 to the Waterfalls of Tennessee. This will require more driving for me and most likely some overnight trips. Overnight Waterfall Road Trip….sounds great, I’m in!! Read more
