2020-04-28 – Road Trip to Greeter Falls

Dateline: April 28, 2020

Since waterfalls are one of our favorite things to photograph, the "Phototeers"  met up and headed to Greeter Falls which is located in South Cumberland State Park, near Altamont, TN.  The park is approximately 57 miles from where I live so it only took about an hour and fifteen minutes to get there.

When we arrived, there were quite a few cars in the parking area, but when we were hiking to the falls we only met a couple of people.  We surmised that most visitors were hiking on other trails.

The trail to the falls is not a really difficult trail, but it is stressful for people that are not in good shape.  When you arrive at the gulley the falls is located in, you have to descend to the river level via a metal circular staircase that is a tight fit if you have a backpack on.  However, we managed to make it down and then back up the staircase without too much trouble.

Once you are at the river level things get hairy.  You have to watch where you step because of the super slick rocks.  If you don't watch your step, then plan on getting wet and a bruised ego or worse.

We worked the scene from every angle we could safely get to and got some decent shots.  So, if you have never been to Greeter Falls it would be worth your effort to check it out.
