We will try this event again. This is the best weather day in the upcoming week. This adventure will start by meeting at the Cracker Barrel off 347 in Harriman. For those interested you can arrive early for breakfast at Cracker Barrel.

We will leave Cracker Barrel as a group for Upper Piney Falls and Lower Piney Falls.  When we arrive at Upper Piney Falls we will take the trail to the Falls and behind the falls.  The hike to the falls is loop hike to Upper and Lower Piney Falls for a total distance back to the trailhead of 1.8 miles.  The section to the bottom of the Upper Piney Falls can be steep in spots but easily accessible.  You can find more information about the falls by googling Piney Falls Natural Area. 

After photographing the falls we will head toward Spring City where we will find a location for a lunch break.  After lunch we will head over to the Stinging Fork Falls.  We will hike down to the Stinging Fork Falls.  It is 1.9 miles round trip from the trailhead to the Falls.  For more about the Falls google Stinging Fork Falls.

Description: What to wear:   Dress comfortable for the weather.  

What to bring:  Camera, Tripod, remote release, water, snacks and whatever you need to be comfortable photographing around the trail and water including filters.  

Walking required: To see the falls will require walking to the falls.  You may want a hiking pole to maintain your balance on the steep sections. The Upper Piney Falls has a cable to use if needed as you descend into the falls.
