Meigs Creek Trailhead: The Sinks and Upper Meigs Falls
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Meigs Creek Trailhead is located 11.4 miles west of the Sugarlands Visitor Center in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Sinks is a turbulent waterfall along Little River that plunges into a deep gorge and suddenly slows, forming large pools ideal for swimming and recreation. While the gorge area is busy, fewer hike the Meigs Creek Trail to Upper Meigs Falls. Upper Meigs Falls sit just beneath the confluence of Curry Prong, Henderson Prong, Bunch Prong and Bloody Branch on Meigs Creek. This secluded fall drops 15' into a small pool shaded by rhododendron and a tall hardwood canopy.
