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.

We were told about Meigs Falls and where to find it by staff at the Summerland Visitor Center. Oddly there is no sign for the falls just a sign indicating rough water or something like that. We easily found the falls on the road. It’s...More

Decent waterfall that can be seen from your car. Just get a map so you know when it's coming up on the Little River Road as there are no signs, just a pull off to park.
