Northrup Falls Waterfall Photos in Tennessee
Today, we’re taking you to one of the most intimate, refreshing waterfalls in middle Tennessee – Northrup Falls at Colditz Cove State Natural Area near Jamestown, Tennessee.
Summer is the best time to go to waterfalls and the river to relax and stay cool. Skipping rocks in the clear water, climbing over boulders and jumping into the deep water. What’s your record for skipping a rock – 4, 6, maybe even 8 if you’re a pro rock skipper!? Sometimes it can feel like 90 degrees outside, but the water is so cold that it takes your breath away when you go under!
Right here in our state of Tennessee, we have more than 500 waterfalls – some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations. From hidden caves to jaw-dropping waterfalls and epic mountain overlooks, we are still amazed at all the places we haven’t seen in our state. I mean, there are more than 850 miles of hiking trails just in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
If you are looking for a secluded waterfall, Northrup Falls might be your next adventure. With a 60-foot waterfall and rock houses that were inhabited by woodland Indians more than 3,000 years ago, put this one on your list of waterfalls to see this summer.
In addition to Northrup Falls, some of our favorite waterfalls are:
“I am well again, I came to life in cool winds and crystal waters of the mountains.” John Muir.
There are many beautiful waterfalls across Tennessee that are available for weddings and elopements. They are often protected and are a part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee state parks, and natural areas. The national park and state parks are a natural and affordable option for beautiful weddings with stunning backdrops.
