Above: The path at Rocky Forky in Unicoi County, TN. Click here a map of this spectacular area, recently protected from development. Click here for an excellent description of the hike to Buzzard Rock.
Directions: Take the Flag Pond exit off of I-26 (exit #50), at the stop sign turn left onto Higgins Creek Road. Drive ½ mile, til you reach Rt. 23, turn right and travel 2 ¼ mi. through Flag Pond, then turn left on Rocky Fork Road. Take your time driving up this road, the creek offers amazing cascades and waterfalls. After ¾ mi. you will see a gravel pull-off to the left with space for about three cars. Park here (out of the way of the gate) and follow the gravel lane into Rocky Fork on foot. A trio of falls is about a quarter mile in on your left.
