Purportedly the longest continuous cascade in the Smokies, Wilson Falls tumbles several hundred yards from the upper bounds of Meigs Post Prong. The falls are comprised of a majestic 400-foot upper cascade that rolls into a rugged sequence of middle tier siblings before dropping into a fifty-foot lower falls. Beginning from the spruce-fir stands near Mount Collins, the hike descends into the lush valley of a tributary of Sweet Creek to its confluence with Meigs Post Prong before turning upstream for a brisk rock-hop to the base of Wilson Falls. A stiff climb up the cascades terminates near the starting point on Mount Collins. The hike is rated difficult due to steep rocky terrain and four miles of slick creek scrambling.
