The Margarette Falls Trail at Cherokee National Forest near Whitesand Tennessee, is a moderate 2.7 mile out-and-back hike up to the 60 foot waterfall, Margarette Falls.

The trail itself starts out easy, uphill on a low elevation grade until you reach the junction with about 3 other trails. From the parking lot to the intersection is about 0.3 miles and is private land on both sides - stay on the trail here.

Upon reaching the intersection, take the right-hand turn and then the immediate left-hand turn to stay on the Margarette Falls Trail. There will be sign posts for the falls as well, just follow those and the blue blazes.

Along the way you'll find plenty of waterfalls about 8 to 12 feet in height, but you'll know you reached Margarette Falls once you see it. The trail has plenty of rocky patches that last 0.1 to 0.2 miles in length and are difficult to walk on, so watch your footing.

Backpacking is technically allowed on this trail and throughout Cherokee National Forest, but there aren't any good places to camp along this trail. However, there are better places more suited for camping on other trails by the first trail junction.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
