The easiest way to navigate the waterfalls in the Smoky Mountains is to buy this little book. We purchased one on our first trip and had a blast chasing waterfalls. This little gem is small enough to carry on the trail but full of all the information you need:
-Pictures of the waterfalls (is it worth the hike)
-Round trip mileage (nothing worse than thinking it's a four miler when it is really an eight miler)
-Directions to the trailhead
-Directions to the falls themselves
We love this book so much, one year we couldn't find it so we bought another! We write the dates we hiked each one on the page along with any other important details we might want to remember.
