The trail is one of the most beautiful sections of the Great Smoky National Park near Townsend and Tremont.  The trail follows the rushing Middle Prong of the Little River, and features overlooks of waterfalls, cascades and rapids cut through a narrow gorge.  This hike follows a wide old logging railroad bed up a gentle slope with 1000 feet of gain.  Indian Flats Falls are a strand of four falls on Indian Flats Prong.  Since the hike is between 2000 and 3000 feet elevation, the temperature will be lower than in Tellico Village.

Hiking boots and hiking sticks are recommended.
Driving directions will be provided the morning of the hike.
We will be car pooling. Please bring $6 to help defray costs for the drivers.
