Spruce Falls

Spruce Flats Falls is a breath taking waterfall located in Tremont, in the Great Smoky Mountains.


Tremont, is named after a small lumber town that was developed when the Little River Lumber Company used this area as a central hub for their mining activities. The name is derived from the combination of "tree" and "mountain."

While the falls are not on the official park map, they receive plenty of visitors each year. Spruce Falls is a scenic waterfall, and one of the most photographed falls in the park. The falls descend downhill in four separate tiers, with a drop of about thirty feet. After landing in a mid sized pool at the bottom of the waterfall, Spruce Flats Branch continues for a distance before branching into the Little River near Upper Tremont Road.
