Within Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this beautiful waterfall can be found after a fairly easy ~1 mile hike. The small creek tumbles over the cliff and enters an underground passage here at White Oak Sink. Behind the waterfall, the Great Smoky Thrust fault can be easily seen as the horizontal line going across the middle of the rocks. The Great Smoky Thrust fault brings up Precambrian metamorphic rocks and places them on top of much younger Ordovician Knox group carbonate sedimentary rocks.
