Colditz Cove State Natural Area. Allardt, TN

A pretty and unspoiled park. The 60′ high Northrup Falls is a short, easy walk over a cleared path. The surrounding area makes for a peaceful hike. Good parking for car or motorcycle.

Several falls in one place. Each waterfall is different. The exposed rock formations are more fascinating towards the end! Well-maintained hiking path and outlook platform. Can get busy on a nice day. Has facilities. Good parking for car or motorcycle.

Black Mountain Trail & Overlook - Crab Orchard, TN

Black Mountain

No waterfall this trip, but splendid views over a valley and out to the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina. Only 15 miles from our house. The drive alone up the mountain road is fun. Good parking for motorcycle. See TennGreen  Information

The 2-mile loop at the top of the mountain is a great hike. See the details from AllTrails.
