This out and back hike in the Cherokee National Forest begins at the impressive Bald River Falls. The trail starts out with a steep climb to the top of the falls then follows the Bald River through deciduous forest and over numerous embankments and cascades to Forest Service Road #126. After enjoying the river view and lunch we will return the same way. Hike is 11.2 miles, rated moderate.

Those wanting to carpool can meet at the Lenoir City Cracker Barrel at 8:00 am. Drive 49 miles, 1 hr 5 minutes from the Cracker Barrel to Bald River Falls. Round trip distance is 98 miles, @ $0.10/mi=$9.80. Meet the leader at the Bald River Falls Parking lot, (not at the Cracker Barrel), at 9:15am.
