North Shoal Creek Falls and Tellico Falls combined to make one of the longest days of my 500 List. It had nothing to do with the hikes but the insane amount of driving it took to accomplish both without staying the night. The hike to North Shoal Creek Falls is 0.2 round trip, but I don’t think the route I took to get to the falls is allowed any longer. Without knowing how the property lines have changed, I can give you where I parked and where the falls are. There was an overgrown road that I took most of the way but I’ve heard this route isn’t allowed. I parked here on SR1324: 35.1787, -84.23334. The waterfall GPS is up above.
