There are a lot of ways to do this one. I tossed the kayaks on the roof of the X-terra and took a drive to middle Tennessee. I put it here 36.03283, -85.62165 and paddled 2.5 miles to the falls. When you put in, paddle acorss and make a right, follow it until you get to the falls. It’s a scenic paddle, and there are some cool things to see along the way. Expect to see a lot of friends at the base and even more up above. The waterfall is unreal.
