And at least, the part you can more easily see is what appears to be smaller waterfalls.
These are waterfalls that flow into Little River.

Finding Cane Creek Twin Falls along Little River Road
First, it will be best to download offline google maps before you go. There’s a good chance you won’t get data service as you’re driving around the vast majority of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Then, when you’re driving, you can put in Cane Creek Twin Falls as your destination.
Once you’re on Little River Road you’ll want to start paying attention to google maps.
You can then use the GPS (this will generally still work around the park) to know when you’re getting close to Cane Creek Twin Falls so you can be prepared to slow down and pull over.
It is quite easy to miss the pullover spot for these waterfalls, and once you pass it, there’s really not an easy way to turn around! And so, looking at google maps will be helpful. The parking spot is not quite so obvious, and until you get really close you might not even notice the small pullover area. It’s kind of on a bend.
And then basically once you are at the parking area, you will be able to get a view from across the river of Cane Creek Twin Falls.
So they are cute little waterfalls.
And I guess the waterfalls are bigger than what you can actually see. More of the waterfalls seem to be covered by the tree leaves. (Read the reviews.)
And that’s a bit about seeing Cane Creek Twin Falls!
Be sure to also see more stops to make on the drive from Gatlinburg to Cades Cove!
HAPPY VISIT TO CANE CREEK TWIN FALLS!
Best shoes for hiking in the Smoky MountainsYou will want good shoes for hiking in the Smoky Mountains.
In general, the best shoes for hiking in the Smoky Mountains will be hiking boots (more ideal) or trail running shoes (more versatile for everyday activities compared to hiking boots but still will give you advantages compared to regular shoes).
I liked wearing my hiking boots for the thicker soles (good on rocky trails) and the waterproof (water resistant) nature of them.
They were especially helpful on rainy day hikes to keep my shoes (and socks!) dry! They are also better to be walking on mud compared to regular shoes.
On rougher terrain (like the trails that are a bit rougher with more rocks), hiking boots are more ideal so you won't feel it on the bottoms of your feet as much.
If you want shoes that can work out better as everyday "out and about" kind of shoes, then you might like trail running shoes better! Trail running shoes are a little more durable than regular shoes, so they can also work out as good hiking shoes. Trail running shoes are a bit lighter weight and less bulky compared to hiking boots.
Shoe fit is very important for your feet! Be sure to break in your new shoes by walking around the neighborhood and/or at the grocery store before you go on your "big hike" in the Smoky Mountains!
