Enjoy one of the most scenic, wild areas in Tennessee with a visit to the Foster Falls Small Wild Area. Operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority and located near Tracy City, Tennessee, this recreation area provides a safe and beautiful base for exploring the south end of the Cumberland Plateau. Foster Falls is a spectacular 60-foot waterfall plunging into a deep pool. Mountain laurel, azaleas and hemlocks growing above the falls, along the sandstone overlook and in the gorge below add to the beauty of this area. An easy hike will take you to the top of the falls. From there, a trail will take you over the river on a suspension bridge to the base of the falls for a delightful view and experience. Foster Falls is known in the climbers’ world as one of the premier climbing destinations in the Southeast. Foster Falls cliff offers a difficult as well as scenic sport climb; the cliff primarily faces south giving you plenty of warm sunshine most of the day. Foster Falls is a steep, compact rock tailor-made for pumpy, technical routes. The cliff line begins at Foster Falls, and runs downstream for nearly two miles, following the curving contour of Little Gizzard Creek.
