Baskins Creek Falls

Baskins Falls is located on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail out of Gatlinburg,TN. At light #8 in Gatlinburg, turn south onto Airport Road. After 3.7 miles the road turns into the one-way Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. About 0.2 miles farther is the first trailhead for the falls. The only marking is a small brown sign for Baskins Creek Trail. There are a couple of small pullovers, one before and one just after the trailhead.

Your preference may be to drive on around to the second trailhead. The hike distance is the same but the difficulty is different.

The second trailhead is located another 2.7 miles past the first. You will see a decent sized parking area on the left side of the road just before the road crosses a bridge. There is an old homestead located on the other side of the bridge. The trail leaves the parking area so you can't miss it.
