Blue Hole Falls

Elizabethton, Tennessee USA

Add to Trip

“splish-splash around!”

On the right side of the parking area is a marked trail that takes you down to 4 waterfalls that make up Blue Hole Falls and down to the plunge pool. It is a short hike and the scenery is beautiful.

Cold, very beautiful and small swimming hole, never crowded. A primo swimming hole! Small,  beautiful rocky gorge with cliffs as high as fifty feet with several cascading pools. Blue Hole is approximately 40 ft. by 30 ft. and estimated to be 15 ft. deep at its deepest point. There is a 20 ft. cliff adjacent to it where people jump off into it. And more . .

There is another trail that leaves from the left of the parking area. This trail  moves closely along a high ridge above the falls.

Eh. I enjoyed the picture more. The trail was a mess. Crowded place even though it was a big challenge to get to it. Pretty, but not worth the hassle.

Fun stop. Definitely slippery and didn't attempt to jump from the ledge due to the rocks jutting out from underneath. Local kids were jumping and nervous watching.

The ride there was twisty, fun, and very much worth it. Unfortunately it was extremely cold the day that I visited
