2552 Northrup Falls Rd, Jamestown, TN 38556
short scenic hiking loop - with waterfall highlight
Northrup Falls is fairly accessible and remotely located and boasts a ~64 foot waterfall with a blue-ish pool at the base. It’s located not too far from Jamestown, Tennessee in the Colditz Cove area, which is 165 acres approximately two miles east of Allardt in Fentress County (and very near the historic town of Rugby). My 5 year old daughter and I tackled the loop in about an hour early on a weekday morning and found the place to ourselves. What I love about this waterfall is that the trail circles behind the waterfall, so you are able to experience it from all angles. Stunning! In addition to the waterfall highlight, there are interesting rock cave formations and the area is extremely green and lush.
