Turtle Town Falls Cherokee National Forest Tennessee

The hike on Earth Day April 22 was beautiful with simple misting of rain. The trail offers a solitude of beauty and peaceful moments. The sounds of rushing water sooths the stress and refreshes the body in tranquil serenity. Spring wildflowers were emerging from their sleepy winters nap to spread dashes of soft color along the path. This is a must see hike in the state of Tennessee.
