Take Cherohala Skyway east from Tellico Plains, TN to River Road (Forest Road #210). Follow River Road about 12 miles to Bald River Falls. You can't miss it - it's on the right as you go over the bridge over Bald River and there are always people on the bridge taking pictures in front of the falls.
Bald River Falls may be one of the most photographed waterfalls in Cherokee National Forest. It is right along the roadway. The waterfall is beautiful in any season, but in the fall it really shines. It is one of my favorite areas - I've visited the area annually for the past 23 years.
