Elrod Falls




Here are some pics of Elrod Falls in Hancock County. These falls are only about 10 minutes from the town of Sneedville.

DIRECTIONS: Take state road 31 either 7 miles south of Sneedville or 11 miles north of Mooresburg to an unnamed gravel road labelled with a small sign for the falls. Turn right from Sneedville and left from Mooresburg. Follow this road for 0.6 miles and then turn left on the first gravel road you see. A picnic area exists at the end of the road after 0.6 miles, though you will pass one or two picnic areas before you reach the road's end. A trail leads 0.1 miles to the base of the falls, which include two small, natural swimming areas. There is an additional cascade above the falls, but getting to it can be treacherous.

    These falls are a great place to visit. Elrod Falls is actually a 3 stage falls but the hike to the top is rather strenous. There are ropes to help climb along the way. The hike is short but extremely steep. The ability to view all three stages is well worth the hike up the hill. If you cross the swimming pool to the other side you will see the begging of the trail to the second and third satges
