The Blue Hole, located in the Stony Creek area of Elizabethton, TN is a really beautiful and special place, and a popular local destination for hikers, swimmers, repellers and photographers. There are four waterfalls located in close proximity to each other and to the parking area. Its accessibility is in some ways a problem -- too many people come here who do not respect the beauty of this area, leaving trash all over the place. It's unbelievable to me that people could be so unappreciative of nature and of others. Negativity aside, this place is definitely worth visiting...and appreciating.

Directions: From Elizabethton, take Route 91 (Stony Creek) for approximately 10 miles, turn left on Panhandle Road, continue for approximately 1 mile to parking area on left. Click here for a map of the area. It's not much of a hike -- The trail from the parking area will lead you down to the falls -- in all maybe 1/4 mi.
