Indian Springs - October 14, 2012
Every year for fall, my husband and I spend a week camping and hiking the
mountains of North Carolina, searching out the wonderful fall color and trying
to avoid the crowds at the same time.  With a little planning and a lot of
walking, you can achieve this nirvana state!  The first hike of the trip was to
a new waterfall (new to us) - Indian Flat Falls.  This was a fairly easy 7.6
mile round trip hike that begins at the Tremont Trail head near Townsend
Tennessee.  The trail follows an old, wide railroad grade creating a nice hiking
surface.  This is a multi-use trail, so you will have to dodge the horses (and
the droppings!).  The trail follows the stream for the most part, giving
wonderful views of small cascades along the way, including a small waterfall
called Lynn Camp Prong Falls.  Stop and enjoy this one, but keep going - there's
more ahead.  At approximately 2 miles, an unmarked side trail on the right leads
to the remains of an old Cadillac (you have to look hard for the trail, but it
is marked by a small cairn).  At approximately 3.5 miles, you'll cross a
wonderful little log bridge.  You'll quickly lose the creek, but as you near the
falls, you'll hear the unmistakable sound at approximately 3.75 miles.  Take the
spur trail on the right (the trail leads off from what looks like a solid rock
wall once you round a corner) which will take you to the upper falls.  While the
lower falls are accessible with some scrambling, the views are best from the
upper falls.

It's more fun to hike if you have the people you love with you. I guess that saying is going pretty well to the both of you. By the way, the photo is so magical. If that's the actual look of Indian Flats Falls, I think I need to start hiking and be there one day. The vibe was so relaxing and inviting. Hiking might be really dead tiring, but this view can ease all the sweat and tiredness!
