Bald River Falls (c) 2008 Patty Hankins
On my recent trip to Tennessee, one of the places I was able to do some photography was at Bald River Falls. Located on FR 210 in the Cherokee National Forest, the falls are located along the Bald River just before it flows into the Tellico River. The falls are between 80 and 100 feet high.
Between the gorgeous fall color and the rushing water from the recent rains, the falls were spectacular the morning I was there.

Bald River Falls are very easy to photograph. Both of my photos were taken from the bridge over the river. There’s a small parking lot just past the bridge on FR 210. All I had to do was park there, and walk back a few hundred yards for a gorgeous view of the falls.
After photographing the falls from the bridge, I headed down to the river bank. Just under the bridge, the Bald River flows into the Tellico River. The fall color along the Tellico River was amazing.

Bald River Falls is very easy to find. From Tellico Plains, TN, take Hwy 165 – the Cherohala Skyway to the intersection with Forest Road 210. Turn right on FR 210, in a few miles, Bald River Falls will be on your right.
