5th Day Chuckey TN- Millstone Creek Falls TN

We have hike to many waterfalls during our travels but never ever saw one that is located in the backyard on a private property ,but I guess there is always a first time.

A short 1/2 hour drive from our C.G we reached an entrance to a private property,reading Mark’s blog http://appalachiantreks.blogspot.com/2007/08/millstone-creek-falls.html I understood that the owner’s do allow a visit if you “behave” so we rolled into the driveway and asked the owner permission to visit the falls.

He was very kind and let us walk his wooden path passing his house to the looking point,woow what a place and all this in his backyard with a cozy sitting area.

Builders that were working at the house told us that in winter the falls freeze and they are 20 feet wide what makes it an outstanding site.

Some more pictures from the same location.

After thanking the owner we drove down stream and took a hike to the lower part of the falls and that too through a private forest surrounding the falls.

The falls run down into the beautiful Nolichucky River that provides nice spots for swimming,fishing and camping.
