Trail shared by John Cabaniss

The Margarette Falls Trail at Cherokee National Forest is a moderate 2.7 mile out-and-back run.

Description

The trail itself starts out easy, uphill on a low elevation grade until you reach the junction with about three 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 run on, so watch your footing.
