Porters Creek Trailhead: Fern Branch Falls
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Fern Branch Falls tumble from an unassuming tributary along the Porters Creek Trail in a remote section of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The short hike follows Porters Creek past the Messer farm site, Ownby Cemetery and Smoky Mountain Hiking Club Cabin to the falls, and continues on to Backcountry Campsite #31, one of the most isolated in the Park. Hikers will enjoy good fishing on Porters Creek, historic sites and deep forest travel en route to Fern Branch Falls.
