If the ranger wouldn't have told us where it was we would have driven right past it. Beautiful as is everything in the National Park!

Nice climb up steps to get to this waterfall. It was simply beautiful! The climb is not bad at all and at the top there's a bench to take a rest if needed. The waterfall is a short hike beyond the steps.

Today we saw Meigs Falls and they were very nice. You can just pull off on the side of the road and see it. The only hard part is it is kind of hidden in the woods from the road. We would go back again!

While doing the Little River Gorge Road, we stopped a bit at Meigs Falls, just to look, and admire the flow. Though it was late March, it was more like Winter in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We had experienced snow, just the day...More

We stopped by on our way to Cade's Cove the day after a big rain. It was flowing! Beautiful little stop without any hiking which is great if you have mobility impaired people.
