This short but powerful waterfall can be accessed by vehicle along Little River Road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 

Motorist can pull over into a small parking area and walk right up to the falls.  It is a popular spot for swimmers, but it is strong discouraged by the park service due to injuries and deaths in the past.

But you don't have to risk life and limb to witness this fast-flowing waterfall.  It's a must-see for those traveling to or from Cades Cove.
