We hiked this trail yesterday after torrential rains the night before. Lots of trees, limbs, debris on the trail. The falls were really rushing muddy water. A snake was sunning on a rock at the double falls.

There’s plenty of confusion about how to reach this trail. Follow these directions: On 68 South, go 21 mi. from Tellico Plains. Cross Hiwassee River Bridge. Turn right on Underwood Road. The Farner Post Office and Farner Presbyterian Church are on your right. Go .3 mile and turn left on Duggan Road. Go .1 mile and turn left on Old Farner Road. Go .5 mile and turn right about 75 yards after you see a brown Turtletown Creek Falls sign. Keep driving to road’s end, and trailhead is on the right .

After you leave the double falls, walk along the creek and up for a while until you come to a T. Turn left to go to the other falls. To leave, go back the way you came until you reach the T. Go straight to make the loop to return to where you started.

Nice short fairly easy hike.
