Cherokee National Forest: Sill Branch Falls

It was a beautiful day today and the Grunwalds decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather by going for a hike. I researched some hikes that would be pleasant but not too tough for the whole family and the hike to Sill Branch Falls seemed to fit the bill.

The hike started off Clark Creek Road in a very pretty pleasant area. Some wildflowers were starting to bloom

as we hiked along Sill Branch.

We crossed the stream on some stepping stones and then steeply ascended to the falls.

The falls were impressively tall with lots of water from the late week rains.

We admired them for a bit before retracing our steps back to the car.
