Hen Wallow Falls is a relatively pleasant hike through hemlock and rhododendron forests leading to a 90-foot waterfall. The hike to the falls is 4.4 miles roundtrip and considered moderate in difficulty. Located in the Cosby section of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Hen Wallow Falls is located off the Gabes Mountain Trail.
Around the 2 mile mark you will begin the descent on a side trail which leads to the base of Hen Wallow Falls. A wooden sign is posted at the turn of the side trail, making it easy to find. Hen Wallow Falls is only two feet wide at the top but expands to almost 20 feet at its base.
