Road Trip to Coker Creek

Last weekend a couple of my cousins from NC came for a weekend visit to Tellico Plains. Bella and I drove up on Saturday and gave them a little tour of Coker Creek Falls and Buck Bald.

It's just a short hike, 1/4 mile to see the series of small waterfalls. The only difficulty is finding your way on the narrow winding back roads! Make sure to stop for directions before you begin the journey!

Buck Bald is a site where an old fire tower once stood. You'll see a great 360 view of Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina.  A favorite spot for horseback riders. We met some interesting people on the bald that day, including a hiker from Louisville, Ky. He is hiking the Benton/McKay trail and was spending the night on the bald. He sure was happy when we gave him all our leftover picnic grub!
