Purportedly the longest continuous cascades in the Smokies, Wilson Falls tumbles several hundred yards from the upper bounds of Meigs Post Prong. The falls are comprised of a majestic 400-foot upper cascades that rolls into a rugged sequence of middle tier siblings and then a fifty foot lower falls. Commencing in the spruce-fir vicinity of Mount Collins, we will descend an upper tributary of Sweet Creek and follow the lush valley to its confluence with Meigs Post Prong where we turn upstream for a brisk rock hop leading to the base of Wilson falls. After climbing the length of the cascades, we will arrive near our starting point on Mount Collins. Hike is rated difficult due to steep, rocky terrain and approximately four miles of slick creek scrambling. Contact trip leaders for meeting place and time.

Pre-registration with the leader is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.
